Endowed Scholarships

Recruiting and retaining the best and brightest students today that turn into the outstanding business leaders of tomorrow requires significant funding for scholarships. Students with scholarships are allowed to focus more on their education and creating those bright futures when some of their financial burdens are lifted. Your support of our students through Endowed Scholarships directly and tangibly impacts their lives for years to come.


Faculty Support

The College of Business professors are a key differentiating factor for our college; professors make a difference daily in the lives of our students and make a lasting impact in their fields and academia. MSU competes nationally and internationally for faculty expertise, and private endowments improve the university's odds in attracting the best scholars, teachers and researchers. Endowed chairs and professorships are a powerful tool for attracting and retaining faculty. Endowed faculty positions recognize scholarly excellence and provide competitive salaries and resources for research, travel and professional development.


Additional Support

Scholarships and Faculty Support is imperative, but there are numerous other ways you can support and advance the MSU College of Business. The state-of-the-art Center for Entrepreneurship and Outreach and the cutting-edge Strategic Finance Lab would not be possible without the generous support of many donors. The College of Business is always looking to the future for new ways to support our students and faculty, improve our facilities, and enhance the future of business in Mississippi, across the nation, and around the world, but we need your help! Contact our Development Team to start discover the best way for you to start leaving your legacy today.
