Alumni & Giving

Programs & Resources

The following programs and resources are a sampling of what has been made possible at the Haslam College of Business through the support of alumni and friends.

Haslam Business Building

Haslam Business Building

The 50-year-old Glocker Business Administration Building was renovated in 2009 after a generous, multi-million dollar donation from the Haslam family. The new James A. Haslam II Business Building is a technologically advanced, state-of-the-art campus within the UT campus.

Masters Investment Learning Center

Located on the Atrium-level of the Hasalm Business building, the Masters Investment Learning Center provides multiple opportunities for hands-on learning in finance and investment. It also houses 16 Bloomberg terminals for use by students at the graduate and undergraduate level. Bloomberg software is considered the gold standard among financial databases, and Haslam is one of the few business schools in the nation to incorporate Bloomberg training into its curriculum. The center was funded entirely through private donations, and many of the Bloomberg terminals were purchased through a gift from the Regions Foundation.

Torch Funds

The Haslam, LaPorte, and McClain Torch Funds allow senior undergraduate and first-year MBA students the opportunity to manage substantial investment portfolios and gain real experience with the stock market. All of the initial funds were provided by generous donations.

Anderson Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation

The Anderson Center seeks to foster entrepreneurship across the university by offering a speaker series and pitch competitions for start-up businesses by students, faculty and staff. It also supports research, classes in Haslam’s MBA and a minor, all dedicated to entrepreneurship. Charlie and Moll Anderson donated a substantial gift in 2010 to help further the growth of these programs.
