DGSS Sponsorship Programs

If you are interested in hosting an ad-hoc event, sponsoring an outside event or conference through one of the DGSS Clubs or if you are seeking our sponsorship and support for your event then this is the page to be.

DGSS recognized Clubs are allocated a budget at the beginning of each academic year. Those funds are at the discretion of the clubs and are meant to support great academic and social events that enrich the experience of our members. NO PRIOR APROVAL IS NEEDED IN ORDER TO USE THOSE FUNDS. Clubs presidents and VPs of Finance simply need to submit the receipts from the events to the DGSS VP Finance for reimbursement.

This page is dedicated to those events that are not organized by a club, but stand as a one-time event on or that are part of a bigger effort that exceeds the financial capability of already established clubs. Moreover, the DGSS welcomes the opportunity to co-sponsor initiatives with other clubs and organizations within the Desautels Faculty of Management.
