Higher education is one of the most essential tools when it comes to preparing our future workforce. Colleges and universities are responsible for grooming the next generation of entrepreneurs, and it’s especially important to support local institutions in order to more directly benefit from the talent they produce.
Understanding the benefits and importance of a strong higher education, the Volkswagen Group of America recently pledged the sum of $250,000 to George Mason University’s School of Business Dean’s Investment Fund.
Dean Sarah Nutter, who is also an ACG board member, has prioritized the investment fund in order to achieve strategic objectives, like student scholarships and curriculum enrichment, as well as supporting faculty development.
“In Volkswagen, the business school could not have a better partner in our quest to provide a top quality education to our students—the future employees of this region,” said Nutter. “Volkswagen’s support epitomizes what corporate citizenship means, and we are grateful for their investment in our students and their success. We look forward to utilizing their gift to the greatest possible effect.”
This kind of funding will enable the School of Business to attract and retain top-notch teaching talent in order to ensure that students are receiving the absolute best business education they can get. GMU has made a name for itself in recent years as one of the nation’s top business schools, and Dean Nutter’s plans should ensure that it remains so.
