Sales Leadership Center

Corporate Involvement

Corporate partners who support the SLC not only help it achieve its mission of creative sales research and education, but also have unique and sustained access to top emerging talent in the field of sales.

Supporters of the SLC become members of the Daniels Corporate Partners Program. Partnership benefits include access to all recruiting events across the college at no additional cost, invitations to exclusive events, on-campus branding opportunities, and additional engagement opportunities designed to help your organization connect with top recruits and build its brand on campus.

As a partner with the SLC, your organization will enjoy unique and sustained access to students who matriculate through the center: students not only from the Daniels College of Business, but from across the University of Denver. Industry partners will be in a position of strength to evaluate, cultivate and finally recruit the best talent the University has to offer. The result for your organization will be an increase in the talent pipeline and a reduction in cost to find excellent new hires.
