Support Our Students

The financial and intellectual commitment of our corporate and individual supporters empowers the Division to prepare leaders for today's global environment.  Our corporate and individual supporters make it possible for our students to develop leadership and analytical skills on campus and firsthand in companies; and for our faculty members to connect with companies to exchange knowledge that informs economics and business research.  Our corporate supporters gain a strategic competitive advantage by investing in the Division’s distinctive education which produces a pipeline of top talent.

The cornerstones of the Division's new approach to economics and business education are the development of a new and up-to-date curriculum, acting on compelling research initiatives, and pursuing multidisciplinary collaborations. Our supporters can play a critical role in these directions by supporting a general fund for the Division’s top priorities – a primary source of support for all the division’s initiatives.  By investing in the Division’s top priorities you will be recognized as an important friend and proponent of our mission to produce graduates and scholarship of international distinction.
