Northeastern to rename computer science school following record $50M gift
Boston Business Journal - 12/17/2018
Northeastern University is renaming its computer science school to honor entrepreneur Amin Khoury after he pledged to donate $50 million to the college. Khoury’s gift represents the largest single donation in Northeastern’s history, a spokesperson for the school said. Two donors combined to give $60 million to Northeastern’s business school in 2012. Khoury received an executive MBA from Northeastern in 1989, around the same time he was starting B/E Aerospace, a company that supplies major airlines with components for their cabin interiors. In 2017, Khoury sold part of his business to Rockwell Collins in an $8.3 billion deal. This year, he sold the other part of his business to Boeing for approximately $3.2 billion.
