Raymond A. Mason School of Business

William & Mary is a place that we know will be good stewards of our support and that our gift to the Mason School of Business will continue to pay it forward for generations. This campaign is a great opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of students and professors. Join us and be part of this.

A Letter from the Dean

The Raymond A. Mason School of Business is at the cutting edge of where I think management education is headed, which is bringing companies, industry leaders, alumni, faculty and program teams together to figure out what it really takes to make our students truly career-ready and to connect them to world class opportunities.  This campaign, at this time in our history, is crucial to our capacity to deliver this promise for “all time coming.”  

So very much of our success as well as our ability to innovate, dream and grow is due to the vision, commitment and enabling generosity of our alumni and friends. I hope you will join us in this campaign and help us make the remarkable possible for our current students and those fortunate enough to join the great Tribe community in the future.
