We are providing a sample sponsorship request that could help you make a compelling case for support from your employer. This is based on an actual student's request, but has been edited for length and clarity. Click here to view.
Disclaimer: Every student approaches this situation differently depending on their individual situation and their company's stance on investing in employees through education. This example is not intended to be a roadmap that you should or shouldn't necessarily follow. It is only provided to give you one approach/idea for how you may begin to build your own case for support. Many of our students take different or less formal approaches and are successful. You know your company and manager best-our advice is only that, at the outset of your discussions, you be prepared to help your employer understand the value of you pursuing this program.
