Through our corporate partnership program, you can develop your workforce and retain top talent while providing your employees with valuable new opportunities to learn and grow. Whether your employees want to master a particular technical skill or take on a leadership role, we’re proud to offer graduate degree and certificate programs designed specifically for working professionals.
Support Student Success by Becoming a Mentor
Our mentorship programs allow professionals to give back by sharing their insights and expertise with College of Business students. Professional mentors can either commit to a year-long mentorship or choose to be matched with a student in need of a 60-minute, one-time mentoring session. As a mentor, you will help students strengthen their interpersonal skills, navigate the transition between their academic and professional careers and chart a path for future success.
Become a mentor and share your experience with the next generation of business leaders.
Host Internships and Fellowships
Nearly 70% of College of Business students take part in an internship during the course of their studies, providing them valuable opportunities to learn by doing and experience the nuances of an industry first-hand. The Career Management Center works with businesses to place students in internships that help them build their resumes and prepare them to enter the workforce.
Our Impact MBA program prepares students to make sustainability a part of the purpose and profitability of a business. You can support these students and accelerate your organization’s progress on sustainability goals by hosting a summer fellowship. During the fellowship, students help businesses meet changing sustainability requirements, prepare for future growth and meet new market demands.
Broaden Industry Networks through Centers and Institutes
Our business research centers and institutes encourage you to expand your professional network and engage in invaluable professional development. Shaped by faculty and guided by industry leaders, our centers and institutes offer valuable insights into the field of business. From supporting startups to exploring new ways to use business to make a social impact, these groups set best practices for numerous industries and provide networking opportunities for working professionals. Each center or institute sponsors events, programming and projects that advance their pursuits while making a positive impact on their communities. Connect with the Institute for Entrepreneurship, Everitt Real Estate Center, HR Edge Network and the Supply Chain Management Forum to take part in their work.
Join an Advisory Board
From the College’s Global Leadership Council to program-specific advisory boards that provide a link between the College and the business world, there are plenty of ways to get involved. Board members are leaders in their respective fields who use their real-world experience to help guide strategy for the College and its programs.
Share Your Experience with College of Business Students
The College of Business takes pride in offering students practical, real-world experiences in the classroom — and your insights might inspire the next great idea in business. If you’re interested in being a guest speaker, working with a faculty member or supporting a research project, you can reach out to our academic departments to learn more.
The College’s clubs and organizations encourage students to explore the field of business outside of the classroom, build a network of colleagues and form lasting friendships. Throughout the year, these clubs host panels, presentations and lectures. We invite community members to reach out to these student organizations to see how they can support their missions and efforts.
Make a Gift and Be the Difference
During the 2021-2022 academic year, College of Business students received more than $875,000 in scholarships, helping students achieve their academic and professional goals. From scholarships to faculty endowments and dedicated program support, donations have an immediate impact on the lives of our students and educators and accelerate academic program development.
No matter the amount, every dollar makes a difference, and we encourage our community members to explore the options for impacting change.
