"We are very excited about beginning our fourth decade of bringing together the Orange County business community and The Paul Merage School of Business. The bright future of business education and center of business thinking in Southern California will soon take shape right before our eyes!

The new business school building is set for completion in Fall 2014.  The building is a tangible tribute to the great things we are accomplishing together - assuring the integrity of the educational process and its relevancy to the global economy.

We are particularly grateful to the Corporate Partners who have recognized the value of what the Merage School does and have already generously committed their support to the building project - Emulex,  Global Benefits Group, Microsemi Corporation, Precept, PricewaterhouseCoopers, ROHL LLC, Sage, Taco Bell, Union Bank, and Virtium Technology, Inc.  

I would like to encourage the rest of our Partners to participate in naming the Corporate Partners Executive Boardroom. We look forward to sharing our excitement with you, and the ribbon cutting ceremony!”
