Benefits of the Corporate Partnership Program

The California Baptist University (CBU) Corporate Partnership Program is a collaboration with businesses and organizations that combines excellence in academics with professional corporate programming. 

As a corporate partner, you gain a formal association with a high-quality, comprehensive Christian University — a relationship with a partner that values integrity, responsibility, and mutual respect. Additionally, you are provided the opportunity to connect with thousands of highly motivated CBU students, faculty, and staff. 

The tax-deductible portion of your sponsorship can be designated to any area at CBU. Whether it’s the Career Center, one of the Colleges or Schools or Athletics, your funds will be directed as you wish.

Added Benefits of a Corporate Partnership with CBU

Talent Development

Brand Partnership
As one of the top universities in the Inland Empire, and all of Southern California, the CBU brand has a phenomenal reputation in the community. Partnering with CBU aligns your business with a trusted, mission-centric organization.  

Executives on Campus
An essential element to the growth and professional development of our students is building relationships with strategic business leaders. As a Corporate Partner and community leader, you may be invited into the classroom to share your experience and knowledge with our students. With each encounter, you will receive networking opportunities with tomorrow’s leaders, and possibly, your next intern or new hire.  

Join colleagues from Pepsi, Altura Credit Union, Tilden-Coil and others who are sharing their philosophies and industry knowledge with our future leaders.

Internships & Recruitment
CBU students find personal and professional growth through academic pursuits, internships and leadership opportunities. As a Corporate Partner, you are invited to attend multiple recruiting fairs throughout the year where you may consider resumes from current CBU students.  

Other ways to get involved at CBU:
Mentor students and/or help develop internship programs with your business.
Join an Academic Advisory Board.
Post jobs, internships and/or cooperative educational opportunities on the university’s website.
Share your knowledge and expertise by serving on a panel at Career Center events.
• Offer students tours of your facility.

Corporate Social Responsibility
Your company’s support of local nonprofits demonstrates your commitment to the community, promotes your business, and can distinguish your organization as a good corporate citizen to your employees and your customers. Charitable giving can also boost employee morale, improve productivity, encourage ethical behavior and increase gratitude to the company. Through our partnership, we can work together to better serve our people, our community and greater society.
