$3 Mil. Gift Creates JD-MBA Professorship
A $3 million gift to the Northwestern University School of Law and the Kellogg School of Management from General Dynamics Corporation will support a special law and business professorship named after Nicholas D. Chabraja, the company’s retired chief executive officer and a Northwestern alumnus.
With the increasing integration of the fields of business and law, this first-of-its-kind professorship will also provide support for the JD-MBA program, the largest and most integrated joint law and business program in the world. The program was the first to introduce a three-year, rather than four-year, course of study.
“Northwestern’s JD-MBA program truly is at the cutting edge,” said Sunil Chopra, interim dean of Kellogg. “Gifts of this nature allow us to continue on our innovative path, and we are very grateful for General Dynamics’ generosity.”
Bernard Black, a nationally recognized expert in corporate law and finance and healthcare regulation, will be the inaugural holder of the professorship.
School of Law dean David Van Zandt also expressed his gratitude for the gift, saying “The Nicholas D. Chabraja Professorship solidifies the strong relationship between Northwestern Law and Kellogg and our concerted efforts to prepare students for careers in which these two disciplines converge.”
