Engage With Us

Our strong partnerships with the best minds in the industry are the distinguishing factor that sets the Jenkins MBA program apart. We welcome companies, businesses, and individuals whose expertise can enhance our students’ learning experience, and whose challenges we can help tackle with actionable solutions.

Team Up to Solve Challenges

The experiential education afforded through a Jenkins MBA is made possible through mutually beneficial relationships with organizations like yours. Students and faculty work hand-in-hand with hundreds of corporate, public accounting, government, and nonprofit partners to find solutions to real business challenges and facilitate learning.

Our coursework involves sharing research and applied experience both in and out of the classroom. If your company would like to provide projects, site visits, or shadowing experiences for students, we want to work with you.

Our accessible faculty and Career Management Center (CMC) are excellent resources for connecting with our talent pool. Please talk with us about sponsoring, hosting or attending student and alumni networking and career development events, or to mentor students from our program.

Corporate Sponsorships

Our goal is to help you recruit the best talent by providing you with direct access to the student body. Through a corporate sponsorship, you can expose your brand and leadership to a new audience of over 700 MBA students.

Poole College of Management Career Center

The Poole College of Management Career Center (CMC) connects students and business leaders through education, resources, and coaching around leadership development, and engagement opportunities. With panels, industry insight events, mock interviews, and recruiting engagements, it’s easy for you to build relationships with Jenkins MBA students. 

Ways to engage


We’re always looking for corporate partners to sit on our panels. A CMC staff person moderates panels and host subject matter experts from throughout the business industry to discuss specific topic areas. Following the discussion, students have time to ask additional questions and network with panelists.

Mock Interviews

Interviewing is like any other skill – the more you practice, the better you get! You will have an opportunity to partner with the CMC to offer real-life interview practice to students in a supportive environment. Students will receive constructive feedback to hone their interviewing skills and have a chance to ask questions to real recruiters.

Industry Insights Events

Unlike panels, industry Insights events have multiples industries and functions represented in one space. Students rotate through tables around a room to explore career paths and to speak with corporate professionals like you!

Recruit our Students

We invite you to meet our students at the next networking event. Not only is this an opportunity to recruit Jenkins MBA students, it will also allow you to get to know them. What may start as a casual conversation over coffee could lead to an internship or even employment.
