Our innovative Centers and Institutes enhance classroom learning by providing professional-development opportunities for our students. CoB Centers and Institutes provide mentoring, guest speakers, executive education, and thought leadership across multiple fields of interest. These activities help get our students Career Ready and Connected.

  • Centers and Institutes support professional-development opportunities with hands-on learning programs. These sessions bridge students' traditional academic experiences with learning from professionals who are in practice.
  • Students also experience real-world interactions with connections to mentors, speakers, and other experiential opportunities.
  • Thought leadership, research, and executive-education opportunities result from interaction of faculty and business professionals.
