Corporate Affiliates Program (CAP)

The Corporate Affiliates Program at DePaul University´s College of Computing and Digital Media (CDM) provides an opportunity for companies to develop long-lasting, strategic partnerships with a college dedicated to educating the next generation of IT leaders in a wide variety of disciplines.

Enrollment numbers for CDM continue to rise over the long term and our graduates are in high demand. Each year, more than 500 organizations actively recruit CDM students at career fairs and by posting jobs and internships with the Career Center. Through the Corporate Affiliates Program, companies can raise their visibility among our student body, receive exclusive access and engagement opportunities, develop relationships with members of our distinguished faculty and staff, and forge strong connections with DePaul University and our alumni base.

Why Should Companies Join the CAP Program?

The CAP program was developed to strengthen relationships between DePaul University and industry partners, and to improve the College´s knowledge of industry needs and practices. It also keeps CAP members informed about CDM´s research and teaching goals, helps faculty better prepare students for real-world careers, assists the placement of students, and makes academia/industry collaborations more likely and successful.
