BancorpSouth Contributions Boost Mississippi College School of Business

August 21, 2013

BancorpSouth continues to be a generous supporter of the Mississippi College School of Business.

That was the case again in August as executives with the Tupelo-based bank presented the company’s latest check to MC School of Business leaders.

It’s the fifth consecutive year that BancorpSouth has made a major donation as a corporate partner with the Christian university’s School of Business.

With its gifts amounting to thousands of dollars over the years, bank has assisted the Center for Economic Education and Analysis on the Clinton campus, and other School of Business programs. The company has supplied speakers for the university’s annual Business & Ethics Week programs.

“We continue to be fortunate to have the support of our friends and Mississippi College alumni at BancorpSouth,” School of Business Dean Marcelo Eduardo said. “They are generous supporters of education in Mississippi and business education at MC.”

BancorpSouth executives Joseph Moss and Brad Maley were on hand for the check presentation with Eduardo in the Self Hall lobby Monday morning.

Maley is a frequent visitor to the Clinton campus. He’s on track to receive his MBA at the Baptist-affiliated school in December. Some of his colleagues at the company are Mississippi College alums.

Founded in 1946, Mississippi College’s School of Business has produced more than 6,000 graduates. Alumni include CEOs, CFOs, and other leading executives making a positive impact on their communities. Enrolling 233 students, the university’s MBA program is the largest and oldest in metro Jackson.

For more than 135 years, BancorpSouth has been a major player in the South’s banking business. The company employs more than 4,000 people at its nearly 300 locations in nine states.

Mississippi College President Lee Royce visited the School of Business on Monday to express his thanks for the strong support from the BancorpSouth family.
