Strategic Partner Program


Strategic Partnership full 

Rivier University is known for its strong academic programs and commitment to creating an atmosphere that cultivates critical thought, sound judgment and respect for all people.

With these strengths as our foundation, Rivier’s Strategic Partner Program seeks to provide innovative and relevant certificate and degree programs for workforce professionals wishing to advance their knowledge and careers.

The Strategic Partner Program is a collaborative effort in which the college, the organization and the employee all benefit. Organizations need effective, productive workers, but their mission is not to become educational institutions to achieve this end. Through the Strategic Partner Program, Rivier applies its expertise to design courses and methodologies that enhance worker skills and increase productivity. With a depth and breadth of resources available, the college can offer high-quality, experienced-based learning environments geared to the needs of the workplace.

In addition to offering courses in its traditional Nashua, NH campus environment, Rivier's Strategic Partner Program can create and customize programs tailored to the needs of your organization. Beyond our classrooms, course delivery systems are offered in on-line, on-site or hybrid/blended format. Your organization's enrollment in Rivier's Strategic Partner Program  qualifies your employees for discounts on degree and certificate courses.

Whether you have a specific workforce education goal or would just like to know more about how our partnerships work, please contact Tim Dreyer, Director of Graduate and Professional Studies Admissions, at (603) 897-8219 or
