Campaign Begins for Full-time UST MBA Class Gift St. Thomas Newsroom April 3, 2012 Students in the Full-time UST MBA program of the Opus College of Business are continuing the tradition of giving back through the Full-time UST MBA Class Gift. The class gift offers those students about to graduate a way to support future MBA students and leave a legacy upon graduation.Last year, the class gift supported upgrades to the student commons area. With a final count of 82-percent participation, the fundraising campaign proved successful. This year, the Full-time UST MBA class of 2012 will focus on “Reaching New Heights” by taking this tradition to a new level.Rather than set a monetary goal, the MBA Class Gift Committee has set a goal of 100-percent participation. Student and alumni rates of giving often are considered by granting organizations in their funding decisions. Participating not only helps to support the UST mission, increase the value of one’s degree, and improve the student experience, but it also helps the university’s reputation nationally.Visit the Full-time UST MBA Class Gift website for more information and to give securely online. Participation results will be updated regularly.
