Launched in April 2012, the Madden School of Business at Le Moyne is named in honor of Michael Madden ’71, who provided a founding gift of $7 million, the second-largest single gift in College history. The Madden School is comprised of three centers of excellence – Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Creativity; Global Business; and Leadership and Business Ethics – that complement Le Moyne’s core values while providing the essential resources for Le Moyne’s business students to become leaders for the 21st century. The school will be located in a fully renovated and reconfigured Mitchell Hall, one of Le Moyne’s most historic buildings; renovation work on Mitchell Hall is expected to begin in 2013.
Once fully funded following the completion of the current capital campaign, the Madden School will feature endowed professorships in accounting, business analytics, information systems and marketing. There will also be additional funding to support undergraduate and graduate scholarship to help ensure access for all students.
