Corporate Research Partnerships

Our Corporate Partners work with McCombs Faculty, PhDs and MBA students on research projects that aim to materially improve their organization’s performance and lend them a competitive edge. Our current and past partners include organizations such as Whole Foods, Microsoft, and PHI Air Medical.  

CLE Faculty are actively seeking organizations interested in partnering on applied research projects. Mutually beneficial collaborations with organizations address the most pressing people problems – e.g., attracting high quality talent, improving employee engagement and retention – while contributing to scholarship at a Tier One research institution.
