A strategic approach 

UNB is taking a strategic approach to enhance our relationships with organizations that have multiple touch points with the university.

Strategic partnerships are mutually beneficial, multifaceted relationships that are entered into with purpose and managed.

Our goals

  • To make it easier for large organizations to work with UNB
  • To be better positioned to identify and capitalize on opportunities to advance the university
  • To increase the effectiveness and efficiency of UNB’s interactions with its strategic partners
  • To promote information sharing among the numerous individuals at UNB who interact with strategic partners
  • To mitigate issues through early dialogue

Current strategic partners

UNB is pleased to have strategic partnerships with four New Brunswick-based companies:

  • J.D. Irving, Limited 
  • McCain Foods
  • Irving Oil
  • OSCO Construction Group

Through these partnerships, UNB is helping students and graduates to find relevant employment — and our partners to find top talent. We're also fostering research that is benefiting the economic development of the region; engaging alumni who work for our partner organizations; and helping to provide a variety of experiences and opportunities to UNB students, faculty, staff and alumni.
