Merck joins Penn State Smeal Corporate Partner Program

May 11, 2017

Merck, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, is the newest Penn State Smeal College of Business Corporate Partner. The company joins 28 existing Corporate Partners.

The Corporate Partner Program offers a variety of ways for companies to tap into the resources of Smeal and Penn State more broadly. Corporate Partners annually provide Smeal with scholarship support, research funding, and sponsorship of many student and professional development activities. Corporate Partners earn exclusive engagement with more than 700 students each year through the Career Planning and Strategies class.

Two Corporate Partner Career Fairs are held each academic year, giving companies an exclusive opportunity to network with Smeal students seeking jobs and internships. Partners also receive an invitation to the spring Smeal Student Organization Reverse Involvement Fair, the Spring Advisory Board Meeting, and premier placement at the Bryce Jordan Center Career Fair.

Merck employs nearly 69,000 workers around the world. The global healthcare company delivers health solutions through its prescription medicines, vaccines, biologic therapies, and animal health products.
