The Chicago-based McGowan Charitable Fund, established in 1992 by former MCI Corp Chairman William McGowan, works with colleges and universities accredited by the International Association for Management Education or the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs. The program is based on McGowan’s personal experiences. He won a scholarship to Harvard and later launched a successful business career.
