College of Business & Economics

Preparing Maryland’s professional workforce through programs emphasizing experiential learning and real-world practice.

One of the few dual, AACSB-accredited programs in business and accounting nationally, the college’s three specialty graduate degrees offer focused preparation in the key emerging areas of marketing intelligence, supply chain management and business advisory services. As the state’s largest college of business, the success of the RISE Campaign will drive the continued development of high-demand programs and initiatives to support our undergraduate and graduate students’ success. As leaders and collaborators, our students bring both high-demand qualities to today’s increasingly competitive workforce.

Gifts Are Supporting These Projects

Stories that Inspire

“I thought that it was the right time to make a substantial commitment to TU’s future and hope it inspires others to support the TU. My goal is that a fellow alum will quickly follow my gift with an even larger gift.”

Fran Soistman, Jr. ’79, ’15 (Hon)

“My life changed. And I knew I would need an updated degree. Scholarships took some of the financial stress off—so I could be a better student and a better parent.”

Andrea Richie ’20

“When I think about my legacy at TU—it is my mentors who moved me to give back. It’s a privilege. Being civically engaged in the community makes you think about how to help those who come after you. My gift funds Model UN, conferences and research positions for students.”

Lauren Cahalan ’18

“The reason I want to help others is rooted in my family background. My story is the epitome of the American dream. I see where my family came from, where I am now, and I see others in need. To ignore it just doesn’t sit right.”
