Roanoke Online offers an innovative program to intuitively guide Purchasing and Marketing students and provide them with the necessary tools for future success. The company partnered with North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NC A&T) to develop a reverse auction undergraduate training curriculum including a well designed negotiation exercise. Utilizing Roanoke Online’s pioneer reverse auction software called RFQHosting, the curriculum enables universities to better prepare students and small & diverse business owners by providing hands-on experience from the initial request for qualifications (RFQ) phase to the final negotiation and competitive bidding.
