Northeastern University students faculty and staff celebrated the official naming of the D’Amore-McKim School of Busi­ness Friday.

The business school, the first school to be named by the university, is being named after Richard D'Amore, co-founder of North Bridge Venture Partners in Waltham, and Alan McKim, founder of Clean Harbors, an environmental, energy, and industrial services provider in Norwell.

Both men dropped out of Northeastern before eventually returning to graduate.
They teamed up to donate $60 million to the business school. It is the largest donation in the university's history.
