Skyward currently has 275 UWSP Alumni employed, of which 132 started with us as interns. We are grateful for the relationship we have with the UWSP School of Business and Economics.”
Karen Glinski, Skyward
“We have been very pleased with our experience with UWSP Corporate Partners Program. They have presented opportunities for us to get more involved with the students on campus along with allowing us to build relationships with other faculty. We have worked together on ways we can help be a resource on campus with faculty and the students on the different opportunities we have to provide! Overall, it has been a great partnership so far and excited to continue building new relationships and ways we can be a resource for the students!”

Keiana JamesSBE Student
“Going to events with corporate partners has expanded my network in ways I never thought was possible. I have made so many connections that will aid me in the professional world. Corporate Partners introduced me to an internship that solidified I am on the right track. They offered me a job after graduation, and I could not be more excited to continue working with them.”
