The corporate community is a vital partner to the Kelley School of Business achieving its key strategies of educating ethical, highly skilled business leaders and sustaining a culture of teaching innovation and research. By investing in the Kelley School of Business, our corporate partners enable us to provide critical student support, curriculum enhancement, and sustainable growth to our academies, workshops, and research centers.

Through initiatives like our Academies, Centers, Workshops and Programs, our Corporate and Foundation team work with our corporate companions to ensure that their sound investment will generate a strong return. Our C&F team works closely with many key offices and divisions of the School — including the Undergraduate and Graduate Career Services offices, Student Clubs and Associations, Academies, and Centers to develop a customized strategy for building a strong organizational presence along with depth and breadth of relationships with our students, faculty, and alumni.
