Partnerships Boost College of Business Administration Initiatives

October 20, 2020


  • CBT's Partnership Program started in 2019. 
  • Each year, the CBT hosts the Business Partnership Summit to showcase the partnerships between our students, faculty and business community.  

The College of Business Administration (CBA) is making strides in its partnership program, an initiative aimed at partnering with stakeholders to provide a transformative education and prepare career ready graduates.  

CBT has built a number of community partnerships through the program, which includes five partners at the President's Level of giving ($20,000 or higher), over the past fifteen months.  In September, CBT announced a new partnership with Truist, at a contribution of $20,000.  Earlier this year, Carroll Financial made an investment of almost $45,000 to support student success initiatives.  

These partnerships are examples of the College of Business' strategic goal to develop alliances with national, regional and local organizations.  CBT Dean, P.N. Saksena, said access to such resources are important to Winthrop's student-centered learning mission.  "We are committed to student success!  Gifts like these ensure that we continue to invest in initiatives aimed at achieving our mission - To provide a Transformative Education, to a diverse student body, in the Heart of the Carolinas," Saksena said.
