The University of Arkansas at Little Rock College of Business says the balance of its Stephen Harrow Smith Dean of Business endowment now sits at more than $2 million.

That's after more than $500,000 in cash and pledges came in as result of the George W. Donaghey Foundation Challenge Match. The Donaghey Foundation said it would match donations up to $500,000.

The funds will support study abroad, business competitions, career planning and placement, and other real-world applications for UALR business students. 

Pete Yuan, chairman of the College of Business Advisory Council, said the endowment is an important investment into the future business leaders of central Arkansas.
