Corporate Relations


Today, as the needs of the business community grow increasingly complex, the Office of Corporate Relations and Resource Development (OCRD) plays an even more critical role in serving and growing relationships with institutional constituents.

In essence, the OCRD is responsible for maintaining and widening the scope of existing partnerships by acting as a liaison between the University and the corporate world. The target constituents of the OCRD are international and local private sector companies, public sector players, state departments, non-governmental organizations, local governments as well as the alumni of the University.

Addressing a broad spectrum of interests and level of involvement, the OCRD facilitates initiatives that aim to expand the University’s corporate network through partnerships, project-driven alliances, philanthropic relationships, and educational programs.
