Corporate Partnerships

Our corporate partnership team facilitates mutually-beneficial relationships to help advance the objectives of both the university and businesses. 

We are the front door for company engagement at Ohio State. We use a consultative approach with business partners to understand their needs and wants and match those with Ohio State’s resources. Each relationship is unique and we’re here to help make the most impact for both the university and the company partner.
