College of Business Administration

Become a Corporate Partner

The College of Business has introduced an annual recognition program to honor those organizations who have made a difference in the college through direct financial support for College of Business programs, research and scholarships. Our goal is to create value for corporate partners by providing opportunities to enhance visibility among students, faculty and alumni. This is our way to show appreciation for your financial commitment to the College of Business.

How long do I receive benefits?
Corporate Partners receive benefits at current level until June 30, 2019 at which time an updated list of partners will be announced for the next year based on donations made in the current fiscal year.
