Collaborate to Educate

The academic experience of our students is greatly enhanced by the expertise of our business partners.

At the same time, collaborating with the School of Management to educate our students can be rewarding for members of the business community.

Class Projects and Experiential Learning

Each semester, our faculty, staff and students look for help with class projects and assignments, experiential learning opportunities, domestic and global trips and more, both virtually and in person. A current list of needs can be found here.

The Projects Clinic, in partnership with local and global businesses, employs School of Management graduate students in experiential learning projects. Clinic interns work with our partner companies to solve real problems. Working in small teams, our interns leverage the skills they learn in the classroom, while also bringing their own perspective to create positive change within our partner organizations.

School of Management students are enthusiastic about applying their skills to solve problems, create new programs or help your organization become more efficient and attract new clients. Our students offer fresh, creative approaches and are hungry for the industry knowledge that our business partners can provide. Any public, private and nonprofit organization may request an intern at the MBA, master’s or senior undergraduate level. To learn more, contact the Office of Internships and Experiential Learning at 716-645-3233.

Presentations, Programs and Mentoring

Our business partners enjoy direct involvement with our students and faculty by lecturing in class, judging a presentation or case competition, or giving presentations at student club meetings. Many of our professional development programs allow corporate executives and entrepreneurs to share their expertise and offer career guidance and insight to students. 

If you're interested in sharing your knowledge and experiences with our students, contact the Office of Alumni Engagement and External Relations at 716-645-3224.
