Saskatchewan Polytechnic Business and Industry Dinners

Business and Industry Dinners

The partnership between business and industry and Saskatchewan Polytechnic is best reflected by the high demand for Saskatchewan Polytechnic graduates. By working together, this partnership ensures Saskatchewan Polytechnic students receive the education and skills training they need to be job ready; make a contribution to their employers from day one.

Support Saskatchewan Polytechnic students by attending our Business and Industry Dinners presented by Graham Group. Sponsorship of these dinners will provide you with the opportunity to build your company's profile while connecting with other business and industry members, students, alumni and faculty of Saskatchewan Polytechnic. Over the course of the evening, you will network with students enrolled in programs directly related to your operations. Come be a part of the conversation!

Almost 1,100 business and industry guests, students and Saskatchewan Polytechnic representatives attended the November dinner series. Proceeds from the dinners will support student awards for Saskatchewan Polytechnic students in the upcoming academic year.
