The Corporate Partnership program is a cornerstone within the College of Business. The College partners with numerous companies, ranging from Reno-area businesses to international corporations, to help engage with and inform students about best business practices. Corporate partners often recruit College of Business graduates, a testament to the quality education and real-world experience students receive within the College.
“Whittier Trust has been a longtime supporter of the College of Business,” Greg Mosier, dean of the College of Business, said. “We are excited about taking our partnership to the next level with their membership in the Corporate Partnership program.

Whittier Trust has recruited many students from the College of Business and based on the quality of candidates decided to raise their level of engagement with the College.
“For Whittier, it provides an opportunity to recruit the best and brightest business students we have and contribute to their success with internship programs and curriculum advice,” Jim McClenahan, director of Career and Corporate Outreach within the College of Business, said. “For the College, the partnership provides amazing opportunities for students and alums to enter the investment and wealth management industry with an amazing company.”
Corporate partners provide critical feedback on the preparedness of the students they work with. In addition, they have the opportunity to bring real-world experience and perspectives to students through guest speaking, assistance with career development workshops and collaboration on class projects. They also help provide important networking opportunities.
