Getting Started Industry Contacts

Partnering with BU is easy and rewarding

First, contact our Corporate Relations office. They’ll schedule an introductory call or meeting for you to discuss your interests and identify faculty experts whose expertise aligns with your goals. Then, you can schedule a visit to campus to meet those experts and other staff who can support your work.

Corporate relations: a holistic approach

Corporate relations with the University have grown broader and richer. You hire our students, collaborate in our labs, take advantage of our executive education, engage our thought leaders, and contribute time, talent, and treasure to our endeavors. Often across multiple schools within Boston University.

We understand that you need partners who can solve a range of problems while also offering opportunities for growth. Because of that understanding, we have a rich history of building strong, multidimensional, mutually beneficial partnerships with industry.

Depending on your research and overall goals, you may work with a number of different BU offices. But start by contacting our Corporate Relations office; they can help streamline the process.
