Texas A&M University and Mays Business School foster an environment where collaboration between the university and industry thrive. Corporate partnerships have an impact on the students’ educational experiences in a variety of ways. Examples of corporate involvement include:
- Orientation: Corporate sponsors underwrite meals and provide a 20-minute presentation about their company to the incoming Full-Time MBA class during the Full-Time MBA program’s orientation.
- Venture Challenge: Entrepreneurs volunteer to have an in-depth analysis of their businesses by teams of students participating in this competition. Corporate sponsors also provide prize money that is awarded to the winning teams.
- Capstone Consulting Project: Companies agree to host teams of students for a semester so they can analyze a pressing issue facing the business. The students present their findings and recommendations to the business leaders and faculty at the end of the project.
Business leaders who work with our program receive numerous benefits, including access to interns, research support through class projects and a recruitment pipeline for future employees.
