When the School was founded in 1965, private support was not a priority. Today, however, support from individuals and corporations is essential to continue to keep the Merage School a top-tier business school. We are relentlessly committed to developing globally-competitive transformational leaders and producing cutting-edge research that advances business and industry in the digitally driven world.

There are a number of areas where your gift can make a great impact toward that goal. Our team is available to share more information and help answer questions. Please contact us today.

Merage School Fund

Any investment, no matter the size, helps keep the Merage School on the leading edge of business education and solidly among the top 5% of the world’s best business schools. From student scholarships to technology upgrades and exceptional faculty recruitment, the need is as important as ever.

Dean's Leadership Circle

When you pledge a gift of $1,965 or more over 5 years, you are welcomed into the Dean’s Leadership Circle, the fastest growing and most prestigious academic support group at UCI. Entrée to exclusive networking events facilitates expanding your professional and social circle. Get an insider’s view to the Merage School and help chart its course.
