Alumni and friends of the College of Business play a critical role in the success of our students and faculty. Your gifts benefit students like Joseph, who is taking full advantage of every educational opportunity offered during his four years as a finance undergraduate. Joseph—like so many of his fellow business students—has immersed himself in one of the College's "signature programs." For Joseph, it is the Student Managed Investment Fund, where undergraduates get real-world experience in managing a long-term investment portfolio. For our marketing students, it is developing a marketing plan through Bulldog Marketing Consultants, and for our economics majors, it is writing and publishing a quarterly state economic impact report. Each of these experiences set our students apart and allow them to graduate with marketable skills that impress future employers.

"It would mean a lot to me if you would consider making a gift to the College of Business today so that my fellow classmates and I can continue to have these experiences that will set us apart. I know a lot of people might not be able to see how their gifts change the lives of students, but I am proof of the impact. Thanks to so many members of the Tech Family, I have been given the tools I need to succeed. And, I’m proud to say that the investment in my education is paying off because I have already landed a job!"
