Corporate Partners

Build Partnerships for Better Education

There are a lot of moving parts that go into our vision of becoming the premier provider of business education in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area. The saying “it takes a village” is not far from the truth. The College of Business at UCO recognizes that the corporate relationships we have are a crucial part of our students’ success, because they help to provide the transformative experiences that will ready them to become business leaders.

Make an Impact through Corporate Partnership

Our Corporate Partners impact the College in a variety of ways. Through areas of financial support, student engagement, recruitment and volunteer service your company can help make a difference. For more information on partnership opportunities with the College of Business, email us


gear /gir/ noun. – a mechanism or group of parts performing one function  or serving one purpose in a complex machine.

There are four areas in the College that Corporate Partners may impact. Participation is tracked annually, qualifying from the time it occurs and through the next fiscal year (July 1 – June 30).




Contributions made to the College of $1000+. Endowed gifts of $25,000+ qualify as lifetime Corporate Partner status.
Student Engage
Organizations with representatives supporting academic teams, speaking in classes, 2BLeaders mentors, Leadership Luncheon speakers, event sponsorships, etc.


Organizations with a representative serving on an advisory board within the College.


Organizations actively recruiting Business students through both on-campus interviews and career fairs.


Corporate Partners will be tracked based on Impact Level. Levels range from 1-4 and are determined by how many areas the partner has impacted during the fiscal year. For example, an organization donating $1000 AND serving on an advisory board would be a Level 2 Corporate Partner.

Based on Impact Level, Corporate Partners will be listed on the College of Business website, featured on the plasma screens throughout the building and also recognized on social media accounts. Corporate Partners may also receive special event invitations to engage with both students and alumni, also dependent on Impact Level.
