Invest in Entrepreneurship Education

Supporting Entrepreneurship Education

The importance of private support for the McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship has never been greater. Gifts from alumni and other friends assist our students and faculty and enhance our unique learning environment. It is private philanthropy that keeps the Eller College among the very best public university business schools in the nation for entrepreneurship education.

Your generous contribution helps us attract and retain the very best teachers and scholars while ensuring admission to the most talented students, regardless of financial need. Your support also provides the much-needed flexibility to offer compelling activities beyond the classroom that challenge our students to successfully prepare for their professional careers.

Your support provides the margin of excellence in all we do. Thank you.
