Radford University’s College of Business and Economics has agreed to sign a memorandum of understanding with ESP to establish a strategic relationship between Radford University and ESP. The agreement will benefit the signatories through branding, advertising and growth with a special emphasis on Northern Virginia.
“Through a wide scope of initiatives, Radford and ESP will work together to promote and encourage innovation and to increase opportunities in education, employment and leadership development,” said Brian Hemphill, Radford University president. “It will create better prospects for students and, in turn, build a stronger workforce for our nation.”
The partnership will offer Radford University students “opportunities for internships, full-time positions, class projects and other initiatives that will be developed over time,” said COBE Dean George Low.
“We will also have access to ESP’s Training Center of Excellence in Chantilly and the use of an office in their corporate headquarters,” Low said. “This will be very helpful as we consider revenue-generating programs that engage executives in Northern Virginia through the COBE’s Center for Innovation and Analytics and other college programs.”
“We are excited about the relationship between ESP and Radford University,” said Douglas Fouser, ESP president and chief executive officer. “Both entities are recognized for their high level of training – Radford’s top quality education for their students and ESP’s high-quality instruction to the U.S. and other countries’ government agencies.”
