Corporate Partnership Opportunities

Corporate Associates Program

The Smeal College of Business offers a variety of ways for companies to tap into the resources of Smeal and Penn State more broadly.

Increased corporate visibility at the Smeal College greatly expands available human resource potential.  Our corporate associates are given direct access to Smeal’s many accomplished student organizations.  Additionally, they may lecture in classes, facilitate case studies, and serve on advisory boards.  There are numerous opportunities for associates to support a variety of student activities.

If you have questions or are interested in participating in this program, review our complete list of the Corporate Associate Program benefits or contact Meg Brower.

Our dedicated Corporate Associates annually provide Smeal with scholarship support, research funding, special gifts, and sponsorship of many student and professional development activities.
