A $1.8 million gift from Gail and Roberto Cañizares ’71, MBA ’74, will provide substantial support to the Emerging Markets Institute (EMI) at the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business.

The gift augments the Gail and Roberto Cañizares Director for the Emerging Markets Institute fund, which the couple established with a $1.5 million gift in 2018. Their new gift will also establish the Emerging Markets Institute Fellows Case Writing Program pilot fund and the Cañizares Award for Distinguished Alumni in International Business and Emerging Markets.

“Rob and Gail’s incredible generosity and dedication to the Emerging Markets Institute and to Johnson are an inspiration to our entire community,” said Mark W. Nelson, the Anne and Elmer Lindseth Dean of the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management.
