Centers of Excellence

Advancing ideas, research and humankind.

As a Jesuit business school deeply rooted in our region’s history and prosperity, the Boler College of Business convenes business leaders, faculty and students around the challenges of how to help Northeast Ohio’s people, businesses and communities engage with, and shape the future.

Through the work of our Centers of Excellence and their initiatives, we seek to prepare students to be transformational business leaders, and equip Cleveland area companies to transform themselves and their markets. The centers support faculty research, teaching excellence, curricular development, and the intersection of research and business practice.

  • The Edward M. Muldoon Center for Entrepreneurship gathers energy and resources for students and faculty with a strong entrepreneurial drive, and supports two vital community business organizations, the Entrepreneurship Association and the Muldoon Partners.
  • The Center for Leadership Skills Development provides leadership development resources to the students of John Carroll University.
  • The Ginn Institute for Corporate Social Responsibility connects students with the Greater Cleveland community through internship opportunities and on-campus speaking engagements regarding how businesses contribute to the quality of life.
  • The Edward J. and Louise E. Mellen Executive Speaker Series hosts an annual appearance by an Executive Officer to provide insight about the strategic focus of their firms and the challenges they face.
