Redlands Partner Network

The School of Business at the University of Redlands has developed a network of partner organizations in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors throughout California, as well as those headquartered across the United States.

The Redlands Partner Network is a place where leaders can connect and exchange ideas with other organizations. Additionally, it serves as a resource and a problem solver for leadership gaps, training needs, retention issues, talent management, and succession planning. A partner has the opportunity to give input about degree programs, customizing schedules, and course content (e.g., case studies/capstone courses) to meet its organization’s unique needs. Partners’ employees can receive tuition discounts, select scholarships, and fellowship opportunities toward degrees and certificates designed to teach them 21st century business skills and help them become purposeful leaders.
