Next HorizonFaculty Support

FIU Business is home to more than 150 faculty members who are leading scholars and industry experts. They offer a wealth of research and teaching experiences, established networks, and practical business savvy. Their work—and success—are the most critical factors in advancing the national and global reputation of the College.

Yet with more than 10,000 students, our faculty count is well below that of our benchmark accredited schools. In addition, the competition for the best business faculty is fierce. To support the growth of the College and provide quality education, we need more faculty. To continue to attract and retain globally recognized scholars, we must create endowed faculty chairs and professorships and raise funds for faculty to pursue next-level innovation. These efforts will enhance FIU Business’s rankings as well as worldwide recognition and respect for our degree. Students will benefit from learning from top faculty, and businesses will gain from the insight and expertise that produces relevant industry intelligence—a must for growing enterprises.

If you are interested in creating an endowed chair or professorship in your name or supporting faculty and research in another way, please contact Jennifer Quintana, executive director of development, at 305-348-7953.
