The Center will make a high-profile addition to the University of Colorado Denver and leverage the school’s global reputation for academic excellence. “The partnership between J.P. Morgan and the CU Denver Business School represents a tremendous opportunity to establish a new and innovative place of learning that will link business education and real world experience in the commodities industry,” said Sueann Ambron, dean of the Business School. “We see the Center as a tangible validation of J.P. Morgan’s leadership in commodities and a dedication to education.”
Faculty and staff at the Center will collaborate with the commodities industry to develop relevant course work and research in industries such as agriculture, energy and minerals. Courses will feature internationally-renowned professors and guest speakers from the industry. The firm’s gift will also support The J.P. Morgan Endowed Chair for Commodity Finance, Economics and Policy, as well as several scholarships for high-achieving students earning degrees related to commodities with plans to enter the industry.
Environmental sustainability and socially-responsible development will be an integral aspect of the education offered at the J.P. Morgan Center for Commodities. Students will gain exposure to this vital dimension of natural resource management and the broader implications for business and the community.
The CU Denver Business School will offer specialization certificates, undergraduate and graduate emphases and degrees and professional education through the J.P. Morgan Center for Commodities. Students can currently take courses in areas such as finance, risk management, sustainability and international business related to commodities. Beginning in Fall 2012, students can take a specialization in finance, risk management and commodities. In addition, professional education courses will begin at the Center in 2013.The vision is to create a world-class educational program that will support the increasingly significant role of commodities in Colorado, the U.S. and the world. Colorado’s history as a leader in agriculture, energy and mining make Denver an excellent location for the Center. Even today, Colorado’s economy is heavily driven by commodities enterprises. For example, 27 percent of U.S. natural gas resources are located in the Rocky Mountain West.
