Corporate Partnership Program


The School of Business and Economics (SBE) at Sonoma State University provides extraordinary learning opportunities to students at the undergraduate, graduate, and industry executive levels. Our academic training, support for entrepreneurs, and career advancement services benefit professionals and industries across the Bay Area. The SBE's Corporate Partnership Program has grown due to generous investments in our school that enhance the programs and career services that we provide to students. Partner firms gain access to well-trained employee prospects and professional faculty members with expertise spanning the business economy.

Partnership Levels and Benefits

We invite you to join with the School of Business and Economics (SBE) to educate the next generation of business leaders and maximize your organization’s recruitment impact. The SBE’s Corporate Partnership Program offers companies a range of recruiting and marketing opportunities to build positive brand awareness on campus.
