Gustave C. Coté backs School of Business with leadership gift

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Gustave C. Coté ’62 Hon., a longtime accountancy professor and former chair of the business administration department, has donated $500,000 to support the new Arthur and Patricia Ryan Center for Business Studies. In recognition, Providence College will name an accounting and finance laboratory in the new building — scheduled to open in 2017 — for Coté and his late wife, Rita.​
