POST UNIVERSITY UNVEILS THE MALCOLM BALDRIGE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS
On Sept. 10, Post University proudly announced that it had been granted permission by the Baldrige family to name the business school after former Secretary of Commerce under Ronald Reagan and well-known business leader, Malcolm Baldrige. At a special event on Oct. 17, Molly Baldrige, local business and community leaders, and other honored guests joined us at an event to honor Baldrige's lifetime of achievement and celebrate the naming of The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business. We are thrilled to be able to extend Malcolm Baldrige's legacy in Waterbury and around the world through the work being done at The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business.

As part of the naming, we will be annually awarding two full-tuition scholarships in Baldrige's name to students wishing to earn a degree in business at our main campus. We have also established The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business Scholarhip Fund through the Connecticut Community Foundation to support local students wishing to earn a degree in business from Post University.
