LOS ANGELES: The University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism has received a $3 million gift from Jayne and Hans Hufschmid to endow a chair in strategic PR and business communications.
The gift will help the university attract a scholar focused on the intersection of communications and business. Once selected, the faculty member will work closely with colleagues at Annenberg and the university's Marshall School of Business.
Hans Hufschmid co-founded GlobeOp Financial Services in 2000 and is the company's former chair and CEO. He was also a principal at Long-Term Capital Management and co-head of its London office for five years.
