Kogod Capital Campaign

Kogod strives to attract the highest caliber faculty, and offer state-of-the-art classrooms, where students have access to both the scholarship and the technology to help them understand today’s business climate and anticipate tomorrow's challenges. Join us now and we will use your investment to secure Kogod's place among the best business schools in the nation.

Investment in Facilities

  • A new Kogod building with seven additional classrooms, a financial services and an information technology lab, a new career center as well as meeting space and a student lounge. The building sits next to the current Kogod building and was completely renovated to create a high-tech and comfortable learning space.

Investment in Faculty

  • Endowed chairs, professorships, and fellowships will enable us to attract and retain outstanding faculty in the areas of accounting, finance, information technology, international business, management, and marketing.

  • Faculty research and teaching funds will provide additional incentives for faculty to excel in their fields and allow the dean to reward the school's brightest, most aspiring faculty. Investment in Students

  • Endowed dean's fellowships and endowed undergraduate and graduate student scholarships will provide the funding to compete with other prominent business schools as we work to attract the best and brightest students.

  • Support for co-curricular student activities will enable us to develop and strengthen resources that contribute invaluably to the learning experiences of our students. Investments in these activities will support K-LAB (Kogod Leadership and Applied Business Laboratory) programs, such as case competition workshops, student clubs, leadership training for student leaders, the Road Scholars program, and the Washington Initiative.

Investment in Research Centers

Research centers are critical to Kogod's success. Not only do they have a strong impact on our ability to recruit faculty and build relationships with our corporate partners, but they increase the demand for our graduate programs and generate financial support for our research. We seek to provide financial support for a number of new and existing programs.

  • The Center for Information Technology and the Global Economy is a valuable resource for companies interested in information technology research. This center focuses on many of the ways advances in technology; including increased use of the internet and innovation in the telecommunications sector are impacting business. The Center also focuses on the national and transnational regulations governing technology.
