Talent Attraction/Retention

In a global race for talent, attracting and retaining great Boler students (undergraduates and graduates) quickly translates into attracting and retaining the best possible accountants, finance and human resource managers, sales representatives, business analysts, marketing and supply chain specialists for Cleveland, Northeast Ohio and wherever our alumni call home.

The Boler Partners Program invites companies to invest in the future of their talent pool and the future prosperity of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio and regions beyond.
