This past week two impressive business contributions came to light for business education. One on a one grand scale….another much smaller but equally important.
Stephen Ross has contributed a total of $378 M to the University of Michigan, with a substantial amount to the Business School appropriately named the Ross School of Business. Mr Ross graduated in 1962 from the business school as I did….perhaps we were in the same accounting classes!
On a much smaller scale, yet equally important was the $1.5 M contribution to the MCC Technology Center in downtown Muskegon. Not only did this contribution benefit the center….it also strengthened MCC by having the center as part of the revitalization of Muskegon and the redevelopment of two very nice buildings.
