The School of Business Development Office serves the School by raising resources needed to provide programs and services that directly benefit students. Tuition dollars account for approximately 85% of the cost of a student's education. Additional resources are sought through private support in order to continue to offer students the highest quality business education possible.
Gifts are sought from a variety of constituencies including alumni, friends, parents, corporations, and foundations. Private support serves as an investment in the quality of our academic programs and furthers the Mission of the School. Your gift makes a difference in the lives of our students by providing enriching educational experiences that fully prepares them for challenging careers in the world of business.
