Associates Program


The Associates Program is your opportunity to have real impact and enhance the learning experiences of today’s business students.

A vital connection between Memorial’s business faculty and the corporate community, this program directly benefits students by funding scholarships, supporting participation in conferences and competitions, and enabling participation in other activities that better prepare students to be innovative thinkers and leaders.
