Mike Ilitch School of Business

Giving Day contributions of every size make a major difference! Support one of these projects today or give to another area that helps the Mike Ilitch School of Business.



With your support, Ilitch School graduates who pass their CPA certification exam within a year will be covered for the cost of their review materials. Accounting grads who earn their CPA license make over $1 million more in their careers than those without certification — help students achieve that massive ROI.  


Study Abroad

Double your impact: The Ilitch School Alumni Council is matching every dollar given in support of the school’s study abroad program — up to $3,100! As students travel to Brazil, China, Italy, the Netherlands and Germany, they are exposed to new cultures and learn about international business practices. Giving Day funds benefit students who would otherwise be unable to afford this life-changing opportunity. 



Contribute to the scholarship fund to help students achieve their dreams. Each year, around 200 students walk through the doors of the Mike Ilitch School of Business thanks to the generosity of people like you. 


Wayne State faculty and staff can give via payroll deduction here.
