Corporate partners are essential to our success, and these relationships are equally rewarding for our partners. Corporate partners gain invaluable exposure to students by making classroom presentations, facilitating case studies, hosting students on-site, and providing internships and full-time employment opportunities. Learn more about recruitment opportunities at the Center, and see our list of current sponsors.

Each corporate partner will have a representative on the Center for Brand Leadership advisory board. At an annual meeting, we discuss recruiting trends for brand management MBAs as well as ways to enhance consumer marketing research and education.

As the Center receives no funding from the Kelley School or Indiana University, corporate partners are vital to our mission, providing operating funds necessary to establish and sustain the Center. To learn more about the benefits of becoming a corporate partner, contact us.
