Investors Circle

The Carlson School of Management harnesses the power of a Big Ten research institution and the vibrancy of the Twin Cities business community. The annual and sustained support from Investors Circle benefactors is critical in our efforts to develop and deliver standout, real-world learning experiences, educate the best and brightest future business leaders and attract and retain internationally renowned faculty.

Investors Circle donors make it possible for the Carlson School to deliver a transformative education, one that empowers our students to find their career paths, hone the skills they’ll need to flourish, and develop as leaders who will shape our world.
