The fledgling Rady School of Management at the University of San Diego has received $5m from Tanya and Charles Brandes of Rancho Santa Fe, through The Tanya and Charles Brandes Foundation. Part of the money has been earmarked for fellowships to provide financial support for MBA students.
“The Brandes Fellowships will provide financial assistance to outstanding individuals who otherwise might not be in a position to pursue their MBA degrees,” says Robert Sullivan, dean at the Rady School. “Attracting such excellent students to the Rady School is a top priority. We are deeply appreciative of the Brandes’ support and their involvement in building our school.”
The Rady School has raised $78m in gifts since its founding four years ago. This has enabled the school to build new facilities, provide fellowship funding for students, support endowed chairs for faculty and increase the number of students.
