Become a Corporate Partner

In 2018, the College of Business 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.
