Matthew Bell values the quality education he received at his alma mater, Carnegie Mellon University, and the challenging curriculum that prepared him well for his career as an investment manager. His professors, including Dr. Akhilesh Bajaj, now a professor of MIS and Chapman Endowed Chair in MIS at The University of Tulsa, offered guidance and support during his time at Carnegie Mellon that he remains grateful for today. Bell also recognizes the importance of students being able to focus on their scholarly work without being concerned about financial issues. Inspired by the philanthropy of prominent business leaders and entrepreneurs like John D. Rockefeller, Sr., Andrew Carnegie and J.P. Morgan, Bell has established scholarships at several universities across the U.S. to help identify and encourage top students in business disciplines who will become the business leaders of tomorrow for our nation. The credentials of TU's professors and strength of the university's MIS program appealed to Bell's desire to support excellence in higher education, particularly in the area of MIS. Through the use of a planned gift, the Matthew Glenn Bell Endowed Scholarship Fund at TU will support scholarships for MIS students committed to upholding the high academic standards that helped shape Bell's own success. Your gift, like Bell's, can help build the path to success for tomorrow's business leaders. 800 South Tucker Drive Tulsa, Oklahoma 74104-9700 To learn more about planned giving or supporting the Collins College of Business, please contact Calvin Moniz, senior director of development, at 918-631-3111, or Philanthropy of historic magnates inspires endowed scholarship
