DePaul University’s Driehaus College of Business
in Chicago, Illinois, recently launched its John L.
Keeley Jr. Center for Financial Services. Funded by a
US$3 million gift from the family of the late finance
executive John L. Keeley Jr. and the Keeley Family
Foundation, the center will support financial academies
such as the Wealth Management Academy
that trains students in private portfolio management
and financial planning. The center also will select
students from the academies as Keeley Scholars
who will have access to professional development
workshops, mentorships, internships, and networking
opportunities with the center’s industry partners.
The Fowler College of Business at San Diego
State University (SDSU) has opened the Center
for Advancing Global Business (CAGB). Home to
SDSU’s Center for International Business Education
and Research (SDSU CIBER) and Charles W. Hostler
Institute on World Affairs, the center will support
academic research, international internships and
study programs, and consultancy projects with
local businesses, among other programs.
