Corporate Connect Program

The Program

Corporate Connect is one of CSUN Alumni Association's unique programs that serve as a catalyst for students to explore new and different places to work. This program opens up a range of possibilities allowing students to work closely with potential employers, consider different industries, hear alumni career stories and observe real-world corporate developments.

During a Corporate Connect event, a small group of up to 20 students will spend approximately two hours at a company/industry of choice. The visit will usually include a site tour (or walk-through), an overview of the organization/industry, an alumni career story and a sponsored Q&A lunch.

The Impact

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 1,000 students and recent graduates have participated in 2016-2019 with visits to Google, Sony Pictures, Disney Animation, Dreamworks, CNN, Marvin Engineering Corporation, Wells Fargo Corporate Finance, Warner Bros, Princess Cruises, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Farmers Insurance, LegalZoom, LAPD, HAAS Automation, innovative marketing firms and many more.

Not only did students and alumni see the value in hosting and attending, but they understood the strength in connecting with fellow Matadors. While CSUN continues to actively follow developments relating to COVID-19 to protect the health and safety of the campus community, we are excited to announce that we are in slowly working to return in-person!
