Corporate Associates

Corporate Associates and Research Sponsors are a vital part of the Wharton Risk Center’s operations

We invite you to become involved with the Risk Management and Decision Processes Center at the Wharton School as a Corporate Associate or Research Sponsor.

The Center is actively seeking sponsors to help fund work in a variety of research areas.

In addition to providing crucial support for the Center’s operations, Corporate Associates participate in roundtable discussions and offer insight into the value, direction and timing of research projects. Research Sponsors provide funding for specific research initiatives of mutual interest and regularly interact with Risk Center directors, faculty and fellows to discuss these initiatives. Associates and Sponsors attend our workshops and conferences at no cost. These meetings offer an opportunity to consult with experts and policy makers from research institutions, industry and government agencies from the U.S. and abroad.

The Risk Center is inviting select organizations to become Strategic Partners. With a multi-year commitment, Strategic Partners play a key role in the Center’s future research, which can enable these companies to impact the future of their industry. Strategic Partners will also benefit from greater visibility and customized relationships across the Wharton School through membership in the Wharton Partnership, Wharton’s primary vehicle for fostering industry-academic collaboration.

We invite your involvement in the Center’s leading research.

Corporate Associate, Research Sponsorship, and Strategic Partnership contributions to the Risk Management and Decision Processes Center of the Wharton School are tax-deductible.
