The Green Bay Packers and Concordia University have announced a new partnership, with Concordia University now the "Preferred MBA Program of the Green Bay Packers."
Concordia University is home to the Batterman School of Business, Wisconsin's largest Master of Business Administration degree program with 15 different concentrations and more than 850 students enrolled. The MBA program offers classes online, in-person at the Mequon, Wis., campus, or at center locations throughout Wisconsin.
Through the agreement, Concordia University is now an associate sponsor of the Packers Speaker Series, a monthly luncheon held in Milwaukee during the Packers season, which gives attendees a chance to hear from and interact with Packers administrators and players.
The partnership also includes the presenting sponsorship of the "Player on the Rise" digital series on packers.com, as well as a permanent sign in Lambeau Field on the south end video board.
"The iconic Green Bay Packers brand represents quality, drive, independence and consistent hard work," said Dr. Brian Curry, MBA program director, Batterman School of Business at Concordia University Wisconsin. "It is beloved and recognized all over the world. We are excited to form a relationship with such a strong, Wisconsin-based brand and look forward to expanding our reach, not just in Wisconsin, but around the globe, with this partnership."
