Target the student market by becoming an ISIC partner

Thousands of businesses and brands around the world improve their marketing to students by offering special benefits to ISIC cardholders.

If you are a bank or university, you can become a co-brand and distribution partner and effectively engage with students with your brand represented right there on the ISIC card.

Examples of existing global partnerships

Microsoft’s partnership with ISIC means that they can guarantee their product gets into the right hands. DreamSpark is Microsoft’s educational programme which allows students to access Professional Developer and Designer tools free of charge. Because all ISIC cards have a unique serial number – ISIC can offer online validation of student status. Microsoft is reassured that their student offer is accessible to verified students only.

The hugely popular Hard Rock Cafe targets students by offering a special ISIC menu in their cafes world wide, at student-friendly prices.

In 2009, MasterCard will launch its new global student credit, debit and pre-paid cards in partnership with ISIC, enabling banks to improve their marketing to students.
