Donor funding supports many learning opportunities within the Melvin D. & Valorie G. Booth School of Business. According to Dr. Benjamin Blackford, Director of the Booth School of Business, these opportunities include study abroad assistance, scholarships, field trips, and profession-based learning opportunities. 

"Support for study abroad programs – with the continued major considerations of international impacts on business, study abroad programs are a huge benefit for students, preparing them to be successful in this environment. While students in international programs still pay Northwest tuition in almost all situations rather than tuition of the international institution, the additional living and transportation expenses can be a barrier for students.

Support for scholarships – many students in the Melvin D. & Valorie G. Booth School of Business are working during their program, taking out loans, or both in order to pursue their dream of a degree. Scholarships help lessen the financial burdens after they graduate or allow them to work less, freeing up time from work to dedicate to their studies.

Field trips – trips to a variety of organizations and locations can introduce students to new opportunities for them after graduation and expand their horizons regarding potential locations. Many of these trips also include interactions with potential employers, helping develop important networks for students. This support helps cover the expenses for students to attend these trips, such as transportation.

Profession-based learning opportunities – we strive to provide a wide range of profession-based learning opportunities, such as Knacktive and the New Venture Pitch Competition, to help best prepare students to be career ready upon graduation. Support for these programs helps with the additional costs associated with providing unique opportunities."
