Grant Thornton becomes third official corporate partner of the Ryan College of Business

The Ryan College of Business has joined forces with yet another powerhouse company.

Grant Thornton, a long-time supporter of UNT, and one of the world’s largest organizations of independent audit, tax and advisory firms, is now the third corporate partner to join the college in supporting student programs, scholarships and initiatives. Grant Thornton's partnership solidifies their commitment to helping the university mold its students to be future business leaders.

“Our Grant Thornton team in North Texas includes a number of UNT alums, and so it is only natural for us to continue our relationship with the University of North Texas by entering into this corporate partnership,” said Tyler Jones, Grant Thornton audit market leader for Texas.

Grant Thornton’s associate director of diversity recruiting, Jessica Olive, is a UNT alum herself, graduating with an MBA in Human Resource Management.

“As the associate director of diversity recruiting at Grant Thornton and a UNT alum, I’m extremely excited about the corporate partnership between Grant Thornton and the University of North Texas,” said Olive. “UNT is a really great school, Grant Thornton is a really great place to work, and both provide awesome opportunities to learn, thrive, and grow. I’m very much looking forward to connecting with my fellow eagles and supporting them as they pursue their career dreams.”

In addition to their corporate partnership, Grant Thornton has supported the college through their recruitment of our students, advising on our boards, and their establishment of the first-ever Grant Thornton Doctoral Fellow in Accounting.

“We have a long history of supporting the UNT College of Business from both a recruiting and financial perspective, and we hope that this new partnership will further support the students of UNT in their pursuit of a career in business,” said Jones.
