UNT is celebrating the creation of the G. Brint Ryan College of Business through a $30 million commitment – the largest gift in university history – from alumnus G. Brint Ryan ('88, '88 M.S.) and his wife, Amanda.
The gift will provide ongoing support for business research through academic endowments, as well as funds to support strategic program initiatives to ensure the college is one of the nation's top providers of business higher education.
"My experience at UNT transformed me. It opened my eyes to a world of incredible possibility. The skills and lessons I learned at UNT enabled me to build and lead a fantastic team of people to the top of the global tax services and software business. I'm thrilled to be able to share some of that success with UNT business students and faculty," says G. Brint Ryan, CEO of Ryan. "This gift will help the College of Business attract and retain some of the best minds in the field enabling us to be more competitive and more effective in our mission at UNT."
