DALLAS (AP) — The University of Dallas is receiving a $12 million gift for a new building at its business school.

The university announced Thursday it had gotten the donation from Satish and Yasmin Gupta, who founded the private steel company SB International.

The money will go to a new academic building for the Gupta College of Business.

Satish Gupta says in a school statement that the University of Dallas inspired the couple’s careers, and he hopes the gift will help inspire future students.
