Business and Economics

College of Business and Economics Excellence Fund

Your gift to the CBE Excellence Fund provides ongoing annual support to the College of Business and Economics for evolving college priorities. The Excellence Fund allows us to provide the best possible experience for our students by funding student scholarships, faculty support, field trips, building enhancements and more.


CBE - Idaho Entrepreneurs

A gift to the Idaho Entrepreneurs program supports U of I's strategic effort to develop Idaho’s next generation of entrepreneurial leaders capable of solving complex business, social and economic issues. The Idaho Entrepreneurs program gives aspiring entrepreneurs and social venturists the inspiration, skills, resources and connections to move their innovation from the classroom and lab into the marketplace of ideas and things. 


Barker Capital Management and Trading Program

The Baker Capital Management and Trading Program provides an opportunity for our students to focus on risk and money management. The approach is founded on the belief that hands-on learning plays a critical role in the development of capital management strategies and skills. The program provides the opportunity for students to trade a range of securities including equities, fixed income, commodities, foreign exchange and derivatives. Students and portfolio teams execute their own trades and develop risk management policies for their accounts. Please give today to prepare our students to be the business leaders of tomorrow.

We can't thank you enough.

For 1,889 minutes last week, Vandals from nearly every state and across the globe came together to support and celebrate the things we all love about the University of Idaho. Whether you made a gift or shared your love for U of I on social media by becoming an ambassador, the Vandal family made a statement together in raising nearly half a million dollars for our students and programs.  Thank you for the unprecedented generosity shown on Vandal Giving Day.
