A Letter from Dean Widing

Thank You for Your Support

It is with great appreciation that I thank you for your generosity to the Weatherhead School of Management. Our Honor Roll of Donors for 2013 reflects the strong support of our alumni and friends and their respect for our role in management education. You empower us with your gifts and help us adapt to the changing needs of business and society.

Your support has made a tremendous difference this year. You established our first chair in accounting and auditing, increased fellowship and scholarship opportunities for our students, and helped launch our Global MBA program, which allows for an unparalleled opportunity for experiential learning across cultures and industries. We created a new department that embraces the university’s strategic focus on “forward thinking” that includes an increased emphasis on entrepreneurism, innovation, technology development and cross-disciplinary activity. Next fall we will offer an MSM in Healthcare and host the Third Global Forum for Business as an Agent of World. Simply put — you have helped advance our mission and created greater opportunities for our students, prospective students, and our faculty by your generous support.

We are very grateful for each and every gift we receive and for the positive impact they have on the Weatherhead community. With your continued support, we will achieve our goals, reach greater heights, broaden opportunities, and remain worthy of your investment.
