The NCICU Business Affiliate Program provides a mutually beneficial link between North Carolina’s business community and the state’s 36 private colleges and universities.
Our Business Affiliates are companies or individuals whose work with NCICU colleges and universities has earned NCICU’s endorsement. We encourage the public and our member colleges and universities to support these businesses.
The NCICU Business Affiliates Program is a new program for 2013. Please check this page often, as we will be continually adding new Affiliates. The list of our current Business Affiliates is shown alphabetically below.
