Making an Investment in the Future of Business in California

The students who attend the University of California, Riverside are some of the best and brightest that the state has to offer. The people who make up the School of Business at UCR understand the importance and obligation they have to train these future business leaders of California.

This is reflected in the programs we offer. Our undergraduate program is the largest in the UC system and our graduate programs continue to offer a variety of high-quality degrees, including MBAs, Executive MBAs and soon, a new Ph.D. program.

None of this would be possible without the generous donations of the friends and family of the School of Business. These gifts, regardless of the size, are nothing short of investments in the future of the state of California.

Areas to Support

While we gladly welcome any sort of donation to the School of Business Administration, here are a few areas in which we are actively seeking support.


 These partial scholarships help provide both undergraduate and graduate students with financial support that allows them to continue their education. These scholarships are generally need-based and range between $1,000 and $3,000. The School of Business Administration’s goal is to be able to provide some financial aid to 25% of the student population.

Student Support Funds

 Where scholarships help students offset the cost of their education, Student Support Funds are used to give SoBA students with enrichment and extra-curricular activities that can help provide them with the “polish” that help them stand out among their peers when they enter the business world.

Faculty Research

 Gifts to support funding of faculty research are really investments in the future of business in the state of California. The research performed by UCR faculty members will explore, explain and improve the business climate of both Inland Southern California and the world.

Facility Improvements

 The School of Business Administration has several smaller projects underway, including the build-out of several faculty offices and working areas in Anderson Hall.

Upcoming Capital Projects

The next step in the evolution of the School of Business Administration is the creation of an Economic Forecasting Center that will help track and predict economic trends throughout San Bernardino and Riverside Counties.
