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, your support will drive the continued development of high-demand programs and initiatives to support our undergraduate and graduate students’ success as leaders and collaborators, both qualities employers are seeking in today’s workforce.
For more information about the opportunities for giving and support of CBE, please contact Frank Sneeringer, Major Gifts Officer for the College of Business and Economics at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The College of Business and Economics offers nearly 25 student scholarships which ensure that students with economic need, and those who excel academically, are supported and rewarded. Consider supporting one of the following: Sam Barone Scholarship, Tignanelli Family Endowment, James Dunbar Jr. Scholarship, Gwen Dunbar Scholarship, Accounting Alumni Scholarship, M. Hojati-Kaynama Endowed Scholarship, Rising Star Endowed Scholarship or Woroby/Zercoe Scholarship in Economics.
Supporting outstanding faculty scholarship in research, teaching and mentorship, ensures that our faculty members continue to thrive and that TU continues to be a highly sought-after institution for rising and established faculty-scholars from all over the world.
Certified Financial Planning (CFP) Center
The development of a CFP Center will provide our students with the preparation and hands-on skill development needed for the Principles of Certified Financial Planning course. Providing financial scenarios, working with client portfolios and establishing financial goals are just some of the real-world challenges our students can anticipate.
Endowed Chairs and Professorships
Endowing department chair positions or professorships ensures that the positions exist in perpetuity. With naming opportunities available, the College of Business and Economics is seeking endowed chairs and professorships in the departments of Accounting, Business Analytics & Technology Management, Economics, Finance, Management and Marketing.
Faculty Research Funding– Support for faculty research awards offsets the direct costs of research studies, projects and feasibility studies. Much of the faculty research that is conducted is done in collaboration with students which means support in this area also directly benefits students and makes real-world learning opportunities possible.
The Sales Center provides solid grounding in the principles of selling, exposure to the latest sales theories and research, and opportunities for hands-on sales skills development. Dedicated lab space, classroom space and exposure to the latest software and leading-edge technology all ensure that our students graduate prepared to lead in business and beyond.
Student Certification and Credentialing
Ensuring that our students are prepared to enter the workforce, equipped and market-ready with Microsoft and Bloomberg certifications, is critical to their success as new graduates. Funding to underwrite the cost of the certification is an excellent way for donors to support our students and prepare them for professional success.
The MentHER program empowers women by focusing on financial literacy, career planning, and life and workplace skills. MentHER connects professional business women mentors with CBE sophomores, who in turn, mentor high school students in the Baltimore area. This “lift as you rise” program combines networking and mentorship among women to support the growth, education, and empowerment of college and high school students.
Expanding opportunities for students to learn and grow in the midst of friendly competition is the goal of the CBE student competitions. Donor support ensures that these events continue to expand with new and exciting challenges and topics.

“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.”
David Diaz ’99
