Educated Workforce

In North Dakota, we take pride in our high-quality education system.  As a national leader in education, your workforce will have the knowledge and skills to give your company a competitive edge.

Maybe its because 95 percent of North Dakotas students receive their high school credential.  Maybe its the low 15.9 to 1 student-to-faculty ratio at our North Dakota University System campuses.  Whatever the reason, North Dakotans are among the most highly educated people in the nation.

Click on the links below to see why a Feb. 24, 2004 article in USA Today called North Dakota an education powerhouse. North Dakotas workforce is ready, available and among the best in the world.

Asst. VP / General Manager

"North Dakota has a very strong educational system all the way from the primary to the secondary education systems, very committed to it. In Wahpeton for instance weve forged a very strong working relationship with the North Dakota State College of Sciences, all the way through curriculum development, through internships with students in the school. When you look at employees, the employees you can attract in North Dakota are some of the best in the country."
