Impact that Resonates

Alumni Richard D’Amore and Alan McKim have joined forces to make the largest philanthropic investment in the university’s history. As a result of their unprecedented gift, Northeastern’s College of Business Administration is now the D’Amore-McKim School of Business.

As business visionaries, D’Amore, a general partner at venture capital firm North Bridge Venture Partners, and McKim, founder, president, and CEO of Clean Harbors, believe in the power of entrepreneurship and innovation to build the global economy.

They know, as we do, that the entrepreneurial economy requires a unique business school that prepares graduates to hit the ground anywhere in the world and run at the speed of innovation, meeting new challenges with bold ideas.

Our business school has pursued that mission from its earliest days. It defines our leadership as an academic enterprise driven by experiential learning, entrepreneurship, and collaboration with industry to solve global problems.

"Once in a generation, history is made in the life of a university." — Joseph E. Aoun

The investment D’Amore and McKim have made in that mission will have lasting impact: enriching undergraduate, graduate, and executive education, expanding experiential learning, entrepreneurship, and international programs, and attracting outstanding faculty and students from around the world.
