Educational Institution Memberships
The Conference Board is uniquely positioned to meet the challenge of bridging the corporate and academic worlds by linking corporate and academic perspectives on the economy, management, and the role of business in society. As the world’s most widely quoted private source of management and economic intelligence, we are one of the few truly global not-for-profit business institutions, with a track record for both innovation and objectivity.
Colleges and universities educate America’s future business leaders, and The Conference Board has been making its research available to the educational community almost from our founding in 1916.
As a part of our mission to help businesses strengthen their performance and better serve society we provide heavily subsidized Educational Associate memberships for colleges and universities.
Educators can choose from several special membership options:
Business & Economics Portfolio Our premier educational associate membership includes historical economic datasets—our most-requested data, featuring the Consumer Confidence Index and the Leading Economic Indicators for the U.S.—as well the 1000+ knowledge resources included in the reSearch Online Collection described below. Site licenses are available for college and university libraries, faculty and administration departments, and individual faculty.
