Indian-American Entrepreneurs Donate $12M to University of Dallas

Satish and Yasmin GuptaIndian-American entrepreneurs, Satish and Yasmin Gupta, recently gifted $12 million to the University of Dallas.   That’s the largest donation the 57-year-old institution has ever received. The donation will fund the creation of a new academic building on the Irving, TX campus housing the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business.

Both donors graduated from the university’s MBA program. The University of Dallas was the couple’s first destination when they moved from India.

“Our dream is for the College of Business to become a global meeting ground for diversity and understanding among all cultures. We hope it empowers students to become leaders who go forth into the world and build stronger communities,” Yasmin Gupta said.

Construction work on the building is set to commence in 2015.
