Benefits for your company

Many of our students receive sponsorship in some form from their employers. It makes good business sense. The program is not training designed to overcome a short-term problem or provide a quick fix solution; it’s an investment in the future.

Why support your employee’s graduate program?

  • Nurture high performers. By nurturing your existing high performers, you provide them with the cross functional knowledge enabling them to excel in their current role and move into their next.
  • Retain the best talent. By demonstrating a willingness to invest in your employee’s future, you encourage them to stay with your organization for the long-term. You receive the benefit of a loyal, highly trained employee equipped with knowledge of new management techniques and strategies.
  • Get an instant return on investment. Your employee will learn skills, principles and best practices they can take from the classroom and apply to their day-to-day business operations. Many assignments are tied directly to your organization and industry, meaning your organization benefits from a number of brilliant business minds.

What does sponsorship involve?

Organizations supporting participants in the program typically agree to:

  • Provide their employee with work hour flexibility so that they can attend classes as required by their program.
  • Provide opportunities for their employee to apply learning to real projects within the organization during the course of the program.
  • Provide monetary support for all or part of the tuition.
