Investor Christian Felipe has given a $1 million endowment to UCSB’s Technology Management Program in support of the new Master’s degree in Technology Management. The money will establish a new endowed professorship for the emerging program, which has been designed to catapult engineers and scientists toward becoming leaders of technology ventures. Felipe hopes the new chair will enable TMP to attract a top senior faculty recruit.
In an Office of Public Affairs and Communications (OPAC) news release, Felipe said, "Knowing that a lot of technology students don’t have all the business knowledge, I thought it was a great opportunity to create future entrepreneurs and technology leaders by supporting the Technology Management Program."
