Over the years, many of these same organizations have forged close partnerships with The School, providing guest speakers, sponsorship of School activities, funding for elective courses, corporate products, tours, accommodations and student scholarships.
To recognize industry partners that have demonstrated consistent support over many years and commitment at the highest levels, The School names an annual “Industry Partner of the Year” during CAREER EXPO.
