Marshall University has announced a $25 million gift to the Lewis College of Business from Intuit Chairman and CEO Brad D. Smith and his wife.

University President Jerome A. Gilbert said Thursday the gift from Smith is one of the largest in the university's history. Gilbert said these funds will be used for “new and dynamic opportunities for current and future business students.”

The College of Business will name its schools the Brad D. Smith Undergraduate School of Business and the Brad D. Smith Graduate School of Business.

Brad Smith graduated from Marshall in 1986 with a bachelor's degree in business administration.

The Smiths previously established a scholarship at Marshall for West Virginia and Ohio students.
