The Colleges of Business on both the USF Tampa and St. Petersburg campuses are undergoing monumental changes. Both have new names after multimillion dollar donations from local philanthropists, and USF St. Pete’s College of Business will soon have a new building.
We have a special two-part University Beat on WUSF 89.7 looking at these developments – we start this week with how the largest gift in university history is altering the main campus’ College of Business.
