Big donor expected for College of Business

Though the details are kept under wraps until 10 a.m. today, a big announcement regarding the Muma College of Business will draw 300 individuals from the Tampa and USF community to the event held at the Muma College of Business Atrium. 

President Judy Genshaft, USF Foundation CEO Joel Momberg and Muma College of Business Dean Moez Limayem are expected to be among those present, as well as the Muma family.

“It’s going to be big,” communications officer Lorie Briggs of Muma College of Business said. “It’s a university-wide announcement that is specifically affecting the College of Business.”

In October of last year, Pam and Les Muma donated $25 million to USF to rename the College of Business, the largest single donation in the history of the university. 

A month before the Mumas made their historic donation, the USF system received its second largest gift of $10 million from Kate Tiedemann, renaming the USF St. Pete College of Business to the Kate  Tiedemann College of Business.

The Tampa Bay Times speculated Monday that the announcement will “introduce a new donor and a fresh commitment of millions of dollars to the USF business school.”
