Corporate Champions

Corporate champions

As a UB MBA, you'll participate in the Corporate Champions program, a unique opportunity that will help you become more involved in business and the community as you gain a real-world perspective on what you learn in class.

Corporate Champions are representatives from the Western New York business community who partner with the School of Management for a full semester to provide a learning lab environment and access to senior leadership to a team of first-semester MBA students.

Throughout your first semester, Corporate Champions work with you in a series of activities, including MBA Advantage, a case study (that incorporates three core courses), a company site visit, a community service activity and an end-of-semester reception.  These distinctive interactions allow you to build relationships that will assist you with your career for years to come.
