There are numerous partnership opportunities at SIUE that benefit corporations and foundations. Some of these opportunities include employee and intern recruiting, professional and executive education, and program development.

Employee and Intern Recruiting

Hundreds of corporations wishing to recruit SIUE students and alumni will work with the Career Development Center to build their talent base. The Career Development Center works proactively to assist students and alumni in their quests to begin or further their careers. The Center hosts numerous events for employers giving corporations opportunities to simplify the recruiting process with highly intensified on-campus events such as:

Professional and Executive Education

Thousands of men and women turn to SIUE to continue their education after earning their bachelor’s degree. In addition to the standard graduate programs benefiting working professionals like the MBA, master's degrees are obtainable in Mass Communications, Accounting, Computer Management & Information Systems, Economics & Finance, Marketing Research, Computer Science, Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. Those working professionals seeking to enhance their skills and advance their careers can earn certificates in Corporate & Organizational Communication, as well as Media Literacy.

SIUE also offers EDUCARD, a special community program allowing people to attend selected classes, for no credit, offered by Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
