Engage With Us

Strong partnerships with the best minds in the industry are key to the success behind the Jenkins MBA program. We welcome companies, businesses and individuals whose expertise can enhance our students’ learning experience, and whose challenges we can help tackle and solve.

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. Talk with us about sponsoring, hosting or attending student and alumni networking and career development events, or to mentor students from our program.
