The Office of Business Engagement (formerly the Office of Corporate Relations) connects business and industry with the resources they need to advance their businesses. We help businesses of all sizes facilitate seamless access across the university community. Our team will work closely with you to understand relevant interests and needs, to bring together contacts and experts from across campus and to develop strategies for a successful business relationship.
Whether you are looking to solve a business challenge, create a new product, address a process issue, explore giving opportunities, hire professionals, find training, or are simply curious about what is possible in collaborating with UW–Madison, we invite you to explore our website and contact us by phone (608-263-2840) or email with your specific needs.
