A Role for Everyone
The Whittemore School's program is poised to become the first choice for business education in New England. Whether you are a graduate, a business partner, or an interested member of the community, there is opportunity for everyone to invest in the future of the Whittemore School.
Choices include donating to the new building fund, mentoring students, guest lecturing, or working with faculty and students by sponsoring internships, partnering through community course projects, or engaging with us in experiential learning. All are needed, and all make a difference.
Here are just some of the opportunities:
Peter T. Paul, class of 1967, has made a transformational commitment of $25 million to fund half the cost of a new building for the school. His challenge invites friends, alumni and the business community to contribute the second $25 million as quickly as possible. We now need other generous donors to come on board. Please contact the UNH Foundation to learn more or make a contribution.
The Russ and Andrea Gullotti Charitable Foundation MBA Scholarship Fund was established in 2001 by Russ Gullotti '80G to provide scholarship support to graduate students enrolled in the masters of business administration program in the Whittemore School of Business and Economics who exhibit financial need and are working to pay their own way through the program.
Win-Win for Community Business
We promise our students a dynamic learning environment, one that combines a comprehensive core curriculum with abundant opportunities for hands-on experience. Our students have participated in community outreach, internships, and consulting projects in Durham and the state.
MBA Consulting Projects
Designed to enhance the MBA candidate's field and research experiences, these special consulting projects are conducted in support of the corporate clients' organizational needs and the educational needs of graduate students in the MBA program. Student consultants have worked on projects as diverse as developing a disaster recovery plan for a national technology corporation, conducting a marketing analysis for a financial institution, and creating a dynamic capacity planning model that has the potential to generate $3 million in cost savings for an energy distributor.
SIGNAL-ing Early Career Success
To help Whittemore School students develop skills in network building, tactical conflict negotiation, and successful interviewing techniques, Professor Tuck Pescosolido established the SIGNAL Program—Students Interested in Growth, Networking, and Leadership. The program brings organizational leaders from industries to meet with the group and share what has made them successful and individuals and business leaders. Participate by e-mailing Professor Pescosolido at tuck [dot] pescosolido [at] unh [dot] edu.
Alumni Mentorship Program
UNH Pathways is an opportunity for alumni to offer advice to students and help them develop career and networking skills in a year-long, one-on-one partnership. Alumni are assigned to a student in a similar major. Students are able to ask alumni questions and gain first-hand knowledge of what to expect in the professional world after graduation.
