The UTC College of Business announces a donation of $50,000 from the SunTrust Foundation to establish an endowed scholarship program in support of undergraduate female students who major in finance. 

The SunTrust Foundation Scholarship will be awarded each year to two outstanding junior women finance majors.  Scholarship recipients’ selection will be based upon an extensive application and interview process, academic performance, exhibited leadership experience and extra-curricular and community engagement activities.

Scholarship recipients will participate in a number of enriched academic experiences provided through the UTC College of Business’ Galtere Institute:  Finance for the Future Initiative, which focuses on helping high potential young women develop the skills and leadership experience to successfully pursue careers in the finance sector. 

“SunTrust is a valued partner to the College of Business,” stated Dr. Robert Dooley, dean of the UTC College of Business.

“By endowing the SunTrust Foundation Scholarship, a pathway to success will be created for young women pursuing a career in finance, which will ultimately lead to an increase of women’s influence and power in the financial sector,” SunTrust President, J.V. Vaughn added.  “The SunTrust Foundation’s mission is to support nonprofit organizations and institutions engaged in activities promoting education, health and human services, culture and art, and civic and community involvement that contribute to the social and economic development of the communities we serve.” 

The College of Business at UTC is committed to providing quality educational programs that produce academically prepared and business-world ready men and women for a competitive global environment, officials said.  The COB has been accredited by AACSB International since 1982 and is ranked as one of the top business schools nationwide by both Bloomberg Businessweek and the Princeton Review.  The College’s faculty includes approximately 47 full time and 15 part time professors – all of whom hold advanced degrees from leading universities throughout the country.  The Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Accountancy (Macc) offer graduate degree programs to those in search of professional advancement and the Executive MBA program targets mid to upper level managers with a fast-paced, broad-based, leadership enhancing experience.

Roy Exum: Mr. Siedlecki, Sit Down!

An editor at the newspaper has already determined a bit of news he or she feels I should read. And then the sticker covers it up so I have to peel it off before I can read “All the news that is fit to print.” As I groveled over my ... (click for more)
