Donate $1,000 and we'll name a locker after you.

NAME-A-LOCKER and help us build on our achievements by supporting the next 50 years!

MBA Locker Campaign

Do you remember how much time you spent in the building during your MBA degree?  Did you make some of your closest friends during your MBA?  Did the MBA change your life?

If your answer is yes, please give back to your MBA program today!

Student space is central to the sense of community among the MBA students, and now there’s an opportunity to create the dynamic, vibrant space that students need. In our 50-year history, there has never been a more important time. In recent years our MBA has gone through a huge transformation of curriculum innovation, industry integration, career services investments and facility renovations, thanks to some major benefactors like Marcel Desautels.

You can help us build on these achievements by supporting the next 50 years! To continue improving in the rankings and enhance the global brand of your MBA we need to:

  1. Attract the world’s very best talent.
    Your MBA might have cost less than $10,000, but current MBA tuition is now $80,000. Student support is key to attracting top students. We are raising funds for 50 new MBA fellowships.
  2. Build a world-class home for our MBAs.
    The best students deserve the very best facilities, which our new building will provide. We are raising over $20 Million to build these facilities.

We have raised over $100,000 from this campaign, all of which is slated to go toward the new MBA facilities!  Gifts of any amount make a huge difference, but… gifts of $1,000 or more to the MBA Next 50 campaign will allow you to name a locker
