A man whose donations have helped promote a business program at the University of Missouri has donated another $6 million to assure the program's future.

The university announced Friday the latest donation from Harry Cornell, who helped establish the Cornell Leadership Program at the university.

Cornell's previous donations had supported construction of Cornell Hall, the main building for the Trulaske College of Business and in 2006 helped establish the Cornell Leadership Program, which provides high-performing business students with opportunities for education and leadership development.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports Cornell's latest donation will help recruit and educate top business students. It brings the total amount of Cornell's donations to more than $13 million.

The program has grown to 130 students.
