The funds, which KPU will receive over four years, will be put towards a variety of funds and initiatives at KPU, including the establishment of endowed scholarships and bursaries, as well as funds for technology, a case competition, and an incubator. In recognition of the gift, KPU has renamed its business school the Melville School of Business. “This very generous gift will create tremendous opportunities for students and faculty, and will significantly enhance the reputation of both the business school and KPU,” said KPU President Dr Alan Davis.
