|Ronald Reagan and Malcolm Baldrige, 1983|
These are the same traits that helped Malcolm Baldrige transform Waterbury-based Scovill, Inc. from a financially troubled brass mill into a highly diversified manufacturer of consumer, housing, and industrial goods. And, they are the same traits that made him one of our nation's most influential secretaries of commerce.
As part of the naming, we will be annually awarding two full-tuition scholarships in Malcolm Baldrige's name to students wishing to earn a degree in business at our main campus in Waterbury. We have also established The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business Scholarship Fund through the Connecticut Community Foundation to support local students wishing to earn a degree in business from Post University.
The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business at Post University is committed to inspiring students to become ethical, innovative, and focused business leaders. We know that business men and women can no longer thrive in their fields with practical knowledge alone. They also must be able to communicate, collaborate, create, and adapt.
That's why we've created and continue to refine our business curriculum to prepare students to excel in modern business environments. We're planning to write more about how our School of Business embodies the Baldrige legacy in an upcoming post.
We issued a press release today announcing the naming of Post University's School of Business, which you can flip to for more details.
We're also planning to host an event on Oct. 17 to celebrate the naming and pay tribute to Malcolm Baldrige and his impact on business. There are many more details to come with this news, so watch our blog for all the updates.
