BHP Partnership & Class Sponsorship

BHP partnership and class sponsorship allows corporate partners to achieve a tailored level of student visibility beyond the standard recruiting process. In exchange for their support, our partners and class sponsors receive the opportunity to connect with students as freshmen, and make meaningful contributions throughout their collegiate experience. Corporations may choose between a one-year partnership or a four-year commitment as a class sponsor.

To become a corporate partner/class sponsor or for more information, please contact Erin Huddleston at 512-471-2843.

Committing to a BHP Class Sponsorship affords your company a unique opportunity to build a strong relationship with a BHP class for their duration of their time at McCombs. It provides on-going tailored touch points with the class during each of their four years in the BHP, as well as the opportunity to engage with the full BHP population through specific events. By building relationships with these students on an early, ongoing basis, companies can be assured that they will have a unique and impactful relationship with the class they choose to sponsor. Class sponsorship is limited to a single company per class at a commitment of $25,000 each year for four y ears.

Partnering on an annual basis will allow your company access to BHP students at specific events. Through the support of corporate partners, the BHP will be able to offer a diverse group of students with outstanding academic and leadership qualities the best in academic preparation and professional development. The corporate partners will, in turn, be able to: (1) contribute to the quality of the education provided; (2) engage with this exceptional student population at the McCombs School; and (3) identify the future leaders of their firms.
