Bringing in the best and brightest

During the campaign, we raised over $50 million of our $80 million goal for student fellowships to compete for and support the best students. The quality of a top business school is measured by the quality of its students. We must continue to attract the brightest students, who are facing the ever-rising cost of tuition.

The Best and Brightest Students Fellowships help us compete against other top schools.

Outstanding students from all backgrounds create a vibrant learning culture, advance scholarly values, inspire and challenge the faculty and in turn become the draw for the next generation of outstanding students. They graduate to become our society’s future — business, community and government leaders who shape our world. This cycle is the essential driver of an outstanding education and a world-class educational institution.


“ The differentiator between other top schools and Anderson is not their career opportunities or their faculty — it’s their financial resources. It’s time we even the playing field. Fortunately, I found a family at Anderson that invested so much into me — it’s a moral obligation that I give back. ”
