Gerald P. Buccino ’63, Seton Hall Regent Emeritus and a nationally recognized pioneer of “turnaround management,” has made a $1 million gift commitment to the newly named Gerald P. Buccino ’63 Center for Leadership Development.
The gift distinguishes the Center from other business school honors programs by providing extensive one-on-one networking opportunities with key business executives. It also provides hands-on professional development for the leadership students to complement their academic learning from the freshman through senior years. The gift will also provide the opportunity for students to have valuable interactions with national and international business leaders, study abroad experiences that expose them to international businesses, leadership collaborations with other universities as well as critical skills development seminars.
“Jerry has always been a true compass, mentor and coach for our leadership students. This aspirational gift provides the opportunity to further leverage the Center’s outreach, performance, and development of extraordinary leaders. These global leaders will in turn impact those they serve for generations to come.”
Michael Reuter – Director of The Gerald P. Buccino ’63 Center for Leadership Development
“Jerry’s long-standing relationship with Seton Hall and the Stillman School of Business has served as an inspiration. From the establishment of the Buccino Scholars program in 1996 to this latest gift, his contributions to the Center have served as a model for the active engagement of top executives and helped to increase our School’s reputation and reach to national prominence – making this so much more than simply an academic honors program.”
