With 3,500 undergraduate students, 500 graduate students, and 100 faculty and staff, the Lee Business School is one of the largest schools at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The Lee Business School has done wonders for graduate and undergraduate students who are studying everything from business law to management information systems. Recently, thanks to a $3 million pledge and $1 million donation, UNLV’s Lee Business School hopes to make even more of an impact in the business world.
“The mission of Lee Business School is to cultivate leaders who transform business,” said Brent Hathaway, dean of Lee Business School. “These gifts will greatly expand the capacity of the current center and further the vision of the school, benefiting students and the community for decades to come.”
Dennis Troesh pledged $3 million to expand the Center for Entrepreneurship (which will subsequently be renamed the Troesh Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation). Additionally, the Charles Koch Foundation donated another $1 million to the school.
The Troesh Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation will partner UNLV students with renowned leaders and entrepreneurs in the business community. These industry leaders will help students learn how to properly negotiate, make strategic investments, learn the ins and outs of business law, how to read a business contract, how to close sales deals, and so much more.
“Business must innovate to stay competitive, and the Center for Entrepreneurship offers the industry vital research and business development services to stay ahead of trends,” said Troesh.
The money from both the pledge and the donations will be dispersed over a five-year period beginning July 1.
There are hundreds of industries that these future entrepreneurs can break into and they aren’t all involving white-collar tasks. The United States is actually the second largest construction markets in the entire world, with a market share of 10% and young entrepreneurs will need to break into this industry to continue to be a global powerhouse.
