Bill Corrigan ’92SVC, ’02MBA donated a special collection of business, marketing, finance and economic books to the St. John’s University Tobin College of Business. A great time was had by all.
The new business library will be available to St. John’s University students at the Tobin College of Business. The collection of books range from classic business tomes such as Peter Drucker’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Hamel & Prahalad’s Competing for the Future to modern day best sellers such as Seth Godin’s All Marketers Are Liars and Malcom Gladwell’s The Tipping Point.
Bill encourages students to be voracious readers and digest as many of these books as possible prior to graduating. “Before you start down the road to your career, one of the singularly most important things you can do as a student is to get world class professional business insight from the leaders of modern business thought. There is no better way for a student to do that than reading the books that those leaders write.” Corrigan said.
Corrigan has grand plans for the library to grow in the future. “This is just the groundbreaking. More books will continue to flow into this collection. If I have my druthers and my goal is realized then this collection at St. John’s University will be the most comprehensive, largest and most sought after business library on Long Island.”
We will provide future updates that will chronicle the growth of the Bill Corrigan business collection.
