CBE wants to grow its graduate programs by creating a $15M endowment, offering increased support to students looking to make a difference in the world.
Graduate student support allows for increased contributions to undergraduate program delivery, publications and conference presentations. Further outreach is accomplished through industry research collaboration, private sector consulting and driving commercialization of university research.
With increased student support, CBE can improve the quality of the graduate experience and bolster recruitment efforts. Scholarship support mitigates the need for students to seek employment opportunities or to drop to part-time status. It provides students with the opportunity to focus on their academic pursuits and experiential learning, increasing CBE’s output of qualified graduates for the marketplace.
CBE graduate students have excellent employment prospects in both the private and public sectors. With a secure endowment, CBE will produce highly motivated and highly qualified graduate students to contribute to the broader business community.
