Corporate Partners Program
Connecting industry to future tech leaders
With a unique combination of CS curriculum and a liberal arts foundation, UNC Computer Science students are prepared to lead and innovate. UNC CS Corporate Partners have exclusive opportunities to engage with some of the most talented, diverse and well-rounded computer science students. From exclusive recruiting opportunities to partner-only events to participation in large-scale student hackathons, partner-level sponsorship provides impactful access to students—access that goes beyond the traditional career fairs, information sessions and job board postings by creating a targeted program with your specific recruiting goals in mind.
Competition for UNC CS graduates is fierce. Graduates have their pick of employers nationwide, with starting salaries averaging $102,320 for undergraduate students. Corporate Partners have first access to these students through events and sponsorship opportunities to create a pipeline of tech talent to achieve your recruiting goals.
UNC CS Corporate Partners are supported by an expansive mix of branding and communication initiatives that allow for maximum visibility to students regarding opportunities and specific company information.
