Become a Business Partner

Image of Become a Business Partner

The Business Partnership Program provides a vital link between the School and the business community—one that supports ongoing initiatives in fundraising, placement, admissions, and student and alumni services. The GSM Alumni Association’s (GSMAA) board of directors is committed to increasing the number of Business Partners, leveraging alumni who want to bridge their organization with the GSM.

When you become a Business Partner, you expand the GSM’s footprint in Northern California, one of Dean Currall’s key objectives for the School.

And, your tax-deductible gift brings myriad benefits. Business Partners enjoy:

  • Networking opportunities, including invitations to the GSM’s top-flight speaker and networking events. You may invite employees, clients, friends and other contacts to join you at these gatherings.
  • Complimentary use of the School’s facilities, including daytime use for company meetings at the Working Professional Program teaching facilities in Sacramento and San Ramon (Bishop Ranch).
  • Priority consideration for student consulting assistance: you provide the GSM with a challenging 10-week project, and a team of students execute the project, guided by faculty and business advisors.
  • Recognition: Business Partners are acknowledged in the GSM’s award-winning Innovator magazine (mailed to more than 8,500 recipients twice per year), at GSM events, on the School’s website, in brochures and in the local media.

The GSM has approximately 2,800 graduates, representing more than 1,400 businesses. As alumni with influence, you can greatly advance the School by encouraging your company to become a GSM Business Partner.

I hope you will join me in this effort to build our community, strengthen our alma mater and encourage support for our top-ranked School. I believe you and your company will find being a GSM Business Partner is a terrific investment. Please click here for more information.

What opportunities, decisions, events have shaped your professional life?

My career path has been a climb across a jungle gym rather than a tangent up a corporate ladder. As a child, I used to thumb through the three-inch JCPenney catalogue, picking out the professional women who I would grow to be. I wanted to rule the world from a corner office in a suit and heels. I wanted to shed my humble origins and become Corporate Barbie.
