Malone University today announced a new partnership with Fastenal Company, a premier global partner in the industry of manufacturing and logistics.

An S&P 500 member and national leader in the supply chain sector, Fastenal aims to help the innovators of the world achieve supply chain excellence by engaging locally, scaling globally, and serving relentlessly.

"Fastenal represents the gold standard in the supply chain and logistics sector, offering not just fasteners, tools, and supplies, but serving as a key partner in driving efficiency, reliability, and innovation which supports industries worldwide,” said Blaise Brankatelli, director of graduate & professional admissions and external partnerships. “With our shared values of integrity and innovation, Malone students will not only gain local experiential learning from a trusted partner, but access to a global network for their lifelong careers." 

Malone’s Learn & Earn program offers students the opportunity for hands-on learning before graduation and gives them access to professional networking connections within the workforce of their choice. The program also trains students to be career-minded while gaining a broader liberal arts education at Malone and may even provide a tuition-neutral opportunity for affordable education as our Learn & Earn partners compensate at a rate higher than many other part-time employment options.

Learn and Earn also aligns with Malone University’s Pendle Hill Pledge, a commitment to provide mentoring, experiential learning, and career support across all programs to all students. While students studying subjects such as Business Management or Accounting may benefit from Malone’s partnership with Fastenal most directly, the program is open to students of all majors.

“Both Fastenal and I are excited to partner with Malone University on the Learn & Earn program to give students an environment to expand their education outside of the classroom,” said Greg Hanlon, district manager of Fastenal Company Northeast Ohio. “We look forward to providing students with pivotal foundations of business that they can utilize as they start their careers."
