Giselle and Steve Rohleder are a Longhorn family through and through. While they were acquaintances in high school, attending The University of Texas at Austin brought them together for good, and they eventually married in 1980. Longtime supporters of the McCombs School of Business,
Giselle earned her BBA in Accounting in 1982 and Steve received his BBA in Finance in 1979. Their son, Daniel, also earned a BBA in Finance in 2010 from the McCombs School and graduated from the UT Law School
In January of 2015, the Rohleders established the Giselle and Steve Rohleder/Accenture Endowed Presidential Scholarship in Business to support undergraduate students in the McCombs School. In Giselle and Steve’s own words, “Our University of Texas experience prepared us for the business world in ways we never really appreciated until we were employed. We have been blessed with success through hard work and education and want to share that success with other students at the McCombs School.” Believing that education is fundamental to lifelong success, the Rohleders have focused their giving in that direction, providing financial assistance in education to those less fortunate. To that end, they created the scholarship with the hope that it would support first generation college attendees and students from financially challenged backgrounds, allowing these individuals to receive a productive and engaging business education.
With the establishment of the Giselle and Steve Rohleder/Accenture Endowed Presidential Scholarship in Business, the Rohleders will help future students follow in their footsteps as dedicated and successful business leaders.
