Since 1953, the Penn State Smeal College of Business has steadily advanced through the growth of its undergraduate and graduate programs, executive education, and major research centers. In 1990 Frank P. Smeal ’42 and his wife, Mary Jean, provided a generous gift to form The Mary Jean and Frank P. Smeal College of Business. The Smeals’ gift to the college was the largest individual donation in the University’s history at the time, creating five endowed chairs and a separate endowment for program excellence.

Thank you to Penn State University and the Smeal College of Business CSCR program for your long-term dedication to improving the industry from the ground up. We look forward to many more years of close collaboration, education, and forward-thinking insights as we work to pave the way for the next generation of supply chain experts.
