More than a career in business—a life of purpose

In a global marketplace, choices exist at every level of business, government, and society that can either produce innovation and value or threaten our well-being and stifle progress.

John Carroll University’s Boler College of Business is Cleveland's business school. We champion a set of principles that teach service to others, incorporating the perspective of a nearly 500-year-old Jesuit tradition into preparing students for the future of work.

We cultivate the critical thinking, technical skills, and resourcefulness that inspire our graduates to become responsible leaders.
