Far Beyond Business as Usual

As one of the world's best business schools, the UB School of Management is continually on the rise. Now, with your support, we will aim higher still: a transformation of business education and the very future of management. How? By advancing thought leadership. By providing student experiences that develop leadership to the fullest. By leading through example. At UB, we’re not just teaching business innovation. We’re driving it.

Here Is How We Create Graduates Prepared to Lead Anywhere

Here, we build connections across cultures and prepare our graduates for success in today’s ever-changing global marketplace. With your investment, we’ll:

  • Endow award-winning programs like LeaderCORE™, which builds MBA students’ abilities to solve problems, motivate, communicate and collaborate, and expand it to other Schools and degree program across the University 
  • Foster international exchange by expanding our Center for Global Programs, boosting study-abroad opportunities and preparing our international students to return home as leaders
  • Allow more students to build programs with sustainable impact
  • Substantially increase undergraduate and graduate scholarships
  • Provide a new campus learning environment, including creating a Living and Learning space for our students to form cohorts and fuel innovation

Here Is How We Help Organizations Work Smarter

Our faculty engage business and industry directly, from working with health care organizations to redefining accounting practices and standards. Philanthropy will allow us to bring more faculty thought leaders to UB and Buffalo with the addition of new endowed chair and professor positions. Your investment also will enable a dramatic expansion of interdisciplinary research and collaborations, such as our pioneering Stephen Still Institute for Sustainable Transportation and Logistics. Here, we put our ingenuity to the ultimate test: We put it to work.
