MMG Insurance has signed on as a major supporter of the proposed new Husson College of Business building on the university’s Bangor campus and technology improvements to the distance learning capabilities at Husson’s Presque Isle campus.

With a shared belief that learning environments must match the demands on today’s students, this partnership reflects MMG’s commitment to strengthening the relationship between businesses and institutions of higher education. Husson’s entrepreneurial spirit and proven ability to convey real-world curriculum that produces career ready graduates is essential to that mission.

“MMG is proud to make this investment in our students and in the infrastructure that will serve as such a valuable resource to them,” says Larry Shaw, MMG President & CEO. “By enhancing distance learning technology and eliminating the obstacles posed by travel for those in Aroostook County, we are delivering on the need to bridge the gap between interest and opportunity.” Shaw continues, “These assets are vital to ensuring we are able to develop a skilled workforce that can lead Maine into the future.”

“We are proud to have MMG’s support as we work toward creating a new home for Maine’s largest College of Business,” said Dr. Robert A. Clark, President of Husson University. “Beyond financial support, MMG has provided career opportunities and internships to Husson students. It is part of the company’s steadfast commitment to helping develop the next generation of financial services professionals.”

Husson’s College of Business is comprised of four separate schools: a School of Accounting; School of Business Management; School of Hospitality, Sport and Tourism; and a School of Legal Studies. The proposed new $16 million state-of-the-art building will allow for interdisciplinary opportunities between schools and programs, and help the University continue to attract talented students.
