Long-Standing Volunteer and Circle of Patrons Member Michael Butt Increases His Support by €1 Million
Michael Butt, MBA’67, one of the school’s most generous donors, recently made a gift of €1 million in unrestricted funds towards INSEAD’s endowment.
A leading volunteer, Mr. Butt has held a number of prominent positions over the years. These include: Member of the INSEAD Board of Directors, Member of the INSEAD National Council UK and Chairman of the INSEAD Alumni Association UK. Mr. Butt was also the Chairman of the INSEAD Campaign board during the school’s second Campaign (2000-2008) and played an instrumental role in its success.
His latest gift is both a demonstration of trust in the direction that the Dean and leadership team are taking the school, and a means to fund key areas and activities to help INSEAD deliver on its mission into the future.
“My confidence in making this donation is strongly influenced by the renewed enthusiasm and leadership that Dean Ilian Mihov and his team are bringing to the best business school in the world, that promotes business as a force for good. My commitment to INSEAD’s mission is stronger than ever,” said Mr. Butt.
“Michael is a prime example of an INSEAD alumnus who has always given back, not only by sharing his valuable time, expertise and insights, but equally as a major donor. He epitomises the life-long passion that our school inspires in our alumni,” shared Ilian Mihov, Dean of INSEAD.
