Corporate Partners

Corporate Partners is a new effort and platform at the Dolan School to forge deeper collaborations with the corporations and business.

Corporations and businesses have transformative impact in the life, mission and vision of the Charles F. Dolan School of Business.

Corporate Partners increases vital communication and cooperation between today’s leading companies and the various academic departments of the School: Accounting, Finance, Information Systems/Operations Management, Management (including Entrepreneurship) and Marketing. Participation in the program demonstrates your company’s commitment to impacting the lives of tomorrow’s business leaders while they are students. The Program supports the excellence of Dolan while providing Partners with greater access to our distinguished faculty, exceptional students and a vast network of professionals and companies.

Corporate Partners have opportunities to engage with faculty and students at the Dolan School in addition to enjoying ongoing communication with fellow Fairfield University alumni at their company and in the industry. Partners are invited to job recruiting events on campus and have an opportunity to participate in a range of Professional Development Series events, including DSB Career Night for Juniors, Mock Interview Day and other annual student engagement activities.

As a Corporate Partner, your philanthropic support can be directed to the Dolan School’s overall strategic initiatives or be focused on the specific department at Dolan that closely aligns with your business interests and industry. This support will be a vital resource for attracting and retaining top-notch faculty, implementing cutting-edge technologies in the classrooms, supporting faculty/student research, and providing creative learning environments for students to study real-world business issues as well as new applied learning, engagement and research opportunities outside of the classroom.
