Mr. Mike Beatty earned his master’s in business administration from the University of Wichita in 1963. He enjoyed the opportunity to study under Professor Fran Jabara, who was inducted into the Kansas Business Hall of Fame in 2007. Mrs. Mary Nell Beatty earned her bachelor’s in history from WU in 1962. Mr. Beatty said he was able to complete his degree because of financial support he received from his employer, The Boeing Company. To give this same opportunity to others, Mr. and Mrs. Beatty established this fellowship.
The Mike and Mary Nell Beatty Endowed Fellowship in Accounting is awarded to a part- or full-time graduate student enrolled in the School of Accountancy. Consideration is given to financial need and academic merit.
