Four years earlier, in 1917, Notre Dame had become the first university in the United States to launch a four-year program of study in "foreign commerce."

Roger Huang, Martin J. Gillen Dean and Kenneth R. Meyer Professor of Global Investment Management, joined the College in 2000. In March 2000, the College of Business received a naming gift from NetApp, Inc. executives, Tom and Kathy Mendoza.
