BOULDER, Colo. (AP) – A University of Colorado graduate has donated more than $2 million to the Leeds School of Business to establish a new chair in finance.
Richard Burridge Sr., a 1951 finance graduate, says his goal is to expand the depth and quality of the school’s finance faculty and help make the department one of the top business schools in the country.
Business school Dean David Ikenberry told the Boulder Daily Camera that Colorado has a major investment community and the endowed chair will help educate future leaders in key areas of finance.
