School of Accountancy and Information Science
Accountancy has always been, and will continue to be, a hallmark of Boler’s credibility and excellence. Boler accounting graduates are educated with a distinct balance of Ignatian values, broad business knowledge and specific skills and tools needed to flourish in a changing profession. A new School of Accountancy and Information Science will strengthen John Carroll’s reputation as a leader and innovator in accounting education. With an expanded emphasis on information science and data analytics, Boler graduates will be highly competitive in a fast changing and dynamic profession.
Masters in Taxation Program
Boler will launch a Masters in Taxation Program within School of Accountancy and Information Science. The 30-credit part-time program will serve working professionals seeking to prepare for the CPA exam as well as current CPAs seeking to advance their careers. The program will enhance analytical, research, and communications skills in graduates and sharpen their ability to recognize and leverage the interrelations among business, finance, and taxation.
Boler alumni lead the region’s accountancy profession across both public and private sectors, including public accounting, tax planning, consulting, and finance. They provide a reliable source of insight into the market demand for additional education for those working in the traditional tax planning and compliance areas, as well as in business consulting and financial planning.
The high visibility and reputation of the School of Accountancy and Information Science will overall will give the Masters in Taxation Program a significant boost of momentum. In order to meet the expectation for excellence that come with that visibility, we will need to build endowments to attract top performing, tenure-track faculty and to expand industry participation in co-curricular learning, including live course projects, competitions and guest speakers
One of the great things about having so many Boler accountancy alumni in key positions across public accounting firms and other businesses, is that we can design a curriculum, and consider the growth data analytics, with an informed view of what employers need.Al Nagy, Ph.D., CPA Department Chair, Robert T. Sullens Professorship in Accounting
Data Analytics Lab
Create a Data Analytics Lab that serves as a hub for a burgeoning community of faculty and students — from across John Carroll University — who share a common goal: to develop analytical and computational capacity among all JCU graduates so that they can harness the power of a data-driven society. The lab will expose students to data knowledge and tools that they will use to manage risk, support decisions and create value for organizations of every size and type.
At a time when the exponential growth of digital data has triggered disruption across industries and redefined value for nearly every business in the world, it’s essential that students both learn to use the tools to harness its power, while also gaining some perspective on new ethical questions and larger social impact. As a Jesuit university, we can bring a perspective and people — from academia, industry, government, advocacy groups — who will encourage students to ask larger questions about the collection and use of data going forward.
A 2016 Bloomberg Businessweek survey of employers ranked John Carroll University’s Boler School of Business No. 1 in the nation for student preparedness for employment. Sustaining that ranking and reputation will require us to rigorously train all students, from business and non-business majors, to gain a certain level of data mastery. We will need support to weave the ethical and social impact of data perspective into the larger University mission.
Data has become the modus operandi for business and business schools. Our challenge is to prepare students for a new level of data-powered, informed decision-making.Andrew Welki, Ph.D. Department Chair, Economics and Finance
School of Leadership and Social Innovation
The School of Leadership and Social Innovation draws upon the talents and strengths of longstanding Centers of Excellence, committed faculty, and community-based learning initiatives at John Carroll University. The Center for Service and Social Action, Edward M. Muldoon Center for Entrepreneurship, a Women’s Entrepreneurship Program, the John Carroll Leadership Initiative and a Socially Responsible Management Honors Program and others like them share a common mission that leads to direct, human-scaled social action. The School for Leadership and Social Innovation will leverage new and established centers of excellence and faculty expertise in leadership, ethics, entrepreneurship and social innovation. We will combine forces to develop ethical leaders to meet the increasingly complex demands on leaders in every industry and organization.
Ethics Boot Camp Initiative
John Carroll University and the Boler College of Business recognize that the convergence of environmental, political, social and economic forces continue to expand the potential for ethical challenges across all areas of business. In such a high-stakes climate, business students need more immersion in and experience dealing with ethical dilemmas. A study by The Center for the Public Trust reveals that more than 80% of college graduates will face an ethical dilemma during their first year in a job.
Boot Camp Initiative immerses students in a rigorous ethics process as a gateway into the broader business curriculum — and as a pre-emptive intervention for future work challenges. The Ethics Boot Camp will inspire students to become ethical and socially responsible business leaders by engaging with their peers around campus, and plant seeds of ethical frameworks and principles that will flourish for the remainder of their undergraduate careers and into the future.
The Boler College of Business at John Carroll University brings a critical mass of resources and expertise to the task of preparing ethical next generation leaders. The Ginn Institute for Corporate Social Responsibility and the Raymond and Eleanor Smiley Chair in Business Ethics, held by Dr. Robert Giacalone, Ph.D., provide Boler students with the academic bedrock, scholarly thinking and experiential opportunities needed to hone their decision making and moral judgement. Dr. Giacalone has been the Series Editor for the Sage Series in Business Ethics, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Management, Spirituality, and Religion, and editor of several special journal issues. He is currently co-editor of the Ethics in Practice book series and serves on several journal editorial boards. Dr. Giacalone has edited/authored 10 books and over 160 articles on ethics and values, and has held consulting roles with large organizations, including the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, PERSEREC, (a security division of the U.S. Department of Defense), Bell Atlantic, Carter-Wallace, Wachovia Securities, and the Federal Reserve Bank.
The Ethics Boot Camp Initiative will need a gift or gifts that yield a minimum of $80,000 in annual operating support. Funds will allow us to create an Ethics Advisory Council and provide a curriculum for learning about ethical decision-making strategies and errors to discipline specific ethical challenges (e.g., ethics in advertising, ethics in hiring). Additional support will be designated to engaging speakers from within the University and the local community businesses, along with Keynote speakers from outside Northeast Ohio, who will present academic and real world ethical scenarios. Mentoring will allow each student to develop a diagnostic assessment of his/her ethical inclinations as well as the person-specific pitfalls they may encounter.
We try to nurture the extraordinary in ordinary people. We believe that everyone can make extraordinary impact in what they do. You can innovate, impact lives and set a higher ethical standard — by stepping forward and standing for things. And you can do it all from a position of relative weakness, you don’t have to sitting at the top of an organization to be a model.Robert Giacalone, Ph.D. Raymond and Eleanor Smiley Chair in Business Ethics
Bridge the gap between classroom learning and real-word entrepreneurial doing — across a range of student segments and partnerships. Startup Internships will match students with regional startups, in partnership with Cleveland-based JumpStart. The Jesuit Entrepreneurship Alliance will pool students and faculty from multiple Jesuit colleges and universities to compete in the annual Global Grand Challenge competition. Impact Entrepreneurships will support low-income Northeast Ohio female students in experienced-based apprenticeships designed to match their desire for a better life with meaningful work and solid mentorships.
John Carroll University has long merged entrepreneurship, experiential learning, values-based enterprise and social justice. New faculty and centers of excellence allow us now to extend our reach and bring a more sustained impact to the community We renew our commitment to giving students the challenges and support required to hone nascent entrepreneurial skills and instincts, and to translate contemplation into action.
Our AdvantageOur Need
Inspired Entrepreneurship initiatives require significant funds both for initial ramp up, student travel, competition fees, staffing and for annual operations.
We want students to see themselves as change-makers. Whether you’re working for a big corporation, the Peace Corps, or your own start-up… be somebody who can make a change for the better in that organization.Doan Winkel, Ph.D. Director, Muldoon Center The John J. Kahl, Sr., Chair In Entrepreneurship
Surround and engage students with a range of experiences and mentors to prepare them to live inspired and ethical business lives in an increasingly competitive and challenging marketplace. The Business Ethics Honors Initiative challenges students to develop a scholar-practitioner-approach to ethics, social responsibility, corporate citizenship and sustainability. The Ethical Companies Travel Program gives students exposure to best practices — HR, finance, supply chain — within the region’s most ethical companies and organizations. The Ethics, Social Responsibility, Corporate Citizenship and Sustainability Fellowship, offered by the Ginn Institute, provides fellowship support to two fellows from the MBA program to pursue a year-long research project related to Ethics, Social Responsibility, Corporate Citizenship or Sustainability.
Recent studies show that eight in 10 college graduates will face an ethical dilemma during their first year on the job. John Carroll University has always engaged in the crucial conversation of what it means to go beyond what’s legal, and actually do what’s right. We do so with the support of a critical mass of resources and expertise to the task of preparing ethical next generation leaders, including the Ginn Institute for Corporate Social Responsibility and the Raymond and Eleanor Smiley Chair in Business Ethics.
Inspired Ethics initiatives require significant funds both for initial ramp up, student travel, scholarships, fellowship support, competition fees, staffing and for annual operations.
We’ve done a good job of preparing students for an ideal business world that doesn’t exist. And the new reality is that we've got to get students out into the real world sooner so that they can encounter ethical dilemmas and entrenched problems. That’s how the next generation will create solutions better than what we’ve created in our generation.Robert Giacalone, Ph.D. Raymond and Eleanor Smiley Chair in Business Ethics
Partnerships in Ethics
Build strong and sustainable relationships in the community, while strengthening organizations and the region by convening influencers and decision makers around the region’s more challenging workforce and workplace issues. The Executive Caucus Initiative will gather business leaders and John Carroll faculty and graduate students to discuss real-world ethical decisions and their implications for organizations and society. Ethics and Social Responsibility Roundtables will match local business leaders and compliance professionals to meet to discuss current issues in ethics, social responsibility, corporate citizenship and sustainability. An Annual Forum Series: The Business Challenge of Ethics, Values and Social Responsibility Lectures – will host a yearly ethics forum in areas such as financial specialization (e.g. accounting, business and technology) to explore the emerging ethical, social responsibility or sustainability challenges in the financial world. Religion, Spirituality and Work InterfaithRoundtables will advance understanding, collaboration, education and dialogue related to the role of religious diversity in advancing the human needs of the modern workplace.
Corporations, non-profits, civic and industry groups and others across Northeast Ohio understand the interplay between ethical and sustainable organizations, and the well-being of the region. John Carroll University plays a distinct and strategic role with its ability to convene thought leaders and decision makers around the region’s more challenging workplace and workforce issues. We do so with the support of a critical mass of resources and expertise to the task of preparing ethical next generation leaders, including the Ginn Institute for Corporate Social Responsibility and the Raymond and Eleanor Smiley Chair in Business Ethics.
Partnerships in Ethics initiatives require significant funds both for initial ramp up, speaker’s fees, travel, scholarships, staffing and for annual operations.
I like to say that there has never been a more exciting time to be in business — but apply that thought to senior management and you could also say that there has never been a more risk-laden or challenging time to be in business. Our Jesuit tradition, a nearly 500-year practice of asking “what is the right way?” has both resonance and relevance for today’s business leader.Alan Miciak, Ph.D. Dean Boler College of Business
Social Innovation Fellows Program
The Social Innovation Fellows Program seeks to attract and mature a cohort of undergraduates, each inspired by Ignatian values, who aspire to merge for-profit business skills and models with design thinking and sustainable social innovation. All Social Innovation Fellows will complete rigorous academic coursework, be paired with business and social innovation mentors and pursue a range of co-curricular challenges and competitions.
John Carroll University and its supporters have invested in the development of faculty, students and programs aimed at advancing experiential learning, values-based enterprise and social justice. Our Arrupe, Honors and Leadership Scholars Programs provide a viable model for how to attract and develop students looking to become agents for transformative change. Our Kahl Endowed Chair in Entrepreneurship, Edward M. Muldoon Center for Entrepreneurship and Raymond & Eleanor Smiley Endowed Chair in Business Ethics provide the faculty expertise and passion to support the Social Innovation Fellows Program.
A $250,000 Social Innovation Fellows Program Endowment will allow us to launch the program with an initial cohort of students. Additional gifts will allow us to build to a cohort of 20 students, expand programming, support additional business mentors and advisors and increase community impact.
We bring students out of the classroom, into the community. Even as we try to create change, we’re asking what does solidarity mean? Social innovation only works if you're meeting another person, not a label, not a statistic, not your own prejudice in the community. At first, there is quite a big gap in understanding. So often times students start, they get their feet wet because they want to help somebody. And that's a fine impulse but it's really misdirected. Once they begin to engage in the community, they do wake up. They discover that more than a good idea, it’s a human encounter that ultimately matters.Sr. Katherine Feely, SND Director Center for Service & Social Action
Women’s Entrepreneurship Program
Create favorable conditions, incentives, mentors and experiences to inspire a new generation of female entrepreneurs across John Carroll University’s fields of study. Our Women’s Entrepreneurship Program will recruit a well-connected Advisory Council, develop a formalized Mentor Network, offer incubation and acceleration space and launch a student-managed angel investing fund.
The Edward M. Muldoon Center for Entrepreneurship has a well-established track record of developing entrepreneurs and leaders — with more than 500 companies are either owned or run by JCU graduates across Northeast Ohio. The rate of women entrepreneurs has been growing at a rate double that of their male counterparts. Women now make up 40 percent of new entrepreneurs in the United States — the highest percentage since 1996, according to the 2016 Kauffman Index of Startup Activity. At the same time, the migration of millennials to the core city of Cleveland has outpaces our peer cities. The trend mirrors entrepreneurship activity tracked by Steve Case, former co-founder of AOL and head of venture capital firm Revolution. Case uses the term “the Rise of the Rest” to denote a new era for entrepreneurship in which high-growth companies can now start and scale anywhere, not just in a few coastal cities. Case says that advancements in tech are lowering the barrier of entry and access to venture capital is expanding geographically. Case gives more targeted reasons for geographies like Cleveland that are related to mobility and cost. “Increased mobility enables ‘Rise of the Rest’ start-ups to more easily attract talent,” writes Case, “often by luring people back to Midwestern cities for lifestyle reasons.”
The Women’s Entrepreneurship Program will need a gift or gifts that yield a minimum of $200,000 in annual operating support. The Advisory Council and Mentor programs will require $10,000 annually to further close the gender gap. Build out and operating expenses for the Women’s Entrepreneurship Program Accelerator will require $50,000 annually to fund early-stage, high-growth potential ideas and an additional $20,000 for staff. A stand-alone gift of $100,000 would launch the Angel Investing Network, a cross-disciplinary, JCU student-managed angel investing fund. JCU undergrad and grad students apply to participate in managing this fund, and thus learn angel and venture capital investment strategies by investing in Cleveland and Northern Ohio entrepreneurs, startup companies and projects.
At the heart of entrepreneurship and leadership from a Jesuit perspective is basic respect for human dignity. Working toward the common good, working in solidarity, helping others. These things are core to our tradition and students can see this is what that means for me as an entrepreneur or someone managing other people. When they can see how to use those traditions in a way that can help them do better in business, and be purposeful and happy — that Jesuit business education at its best.Tina Facca-Miess, Ph.D. Associate Professor Of Marketing
Finance and Capital Markets
Boler will build on the strength of enrollment in our finance programs and the success of our alumni by creating a named center of excellence in Finance and Capital Markets. We will introduce a new pathway in wealth management, and we will transform a computer lab into a state-of-the-art Capital Markets Lab. This center for teaching, learning and research around capital markets will also offer a naming opportunity. Our plans will greatly improve Boler’s ability to recruit top faculty, attract top students, and supply top talent.
Capital Markets Lab
Build on the reputation and success of existing finance degree programs by adding both new facilities (Capital Markets Lab) and programs (a Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards registered undergraduate program in wealth management).
The Boler Finance program holds Chartered Financial Analyst designation by the CFA University Recognition Program, one of only 305 schools world wide to earn this credential. We have more than 400 Boler alumni with careers and expertise in Wealth Management. We recognize that the next generation of graduates will need even more quantitative and analytical skills as data becomes the beating heart of all activity in financial markets. Our students must learn to use information and complex analytical tools to manage assets and add value for clients.
Along with a strong curriculum shaped by industry advisors, ever-evolving electives, and crucial internship and networking opportunities, Boler seeks to give students — whether majoring in finance or other business areas — access to a robust Capital Markets Lab. Capital Markets Lab support will fund construction, equipment, subscription and lab support costs, with additional money going toward an endowment to support the learning lab in perpetuity. Access to the Capital Markets Lab will provide Boler students with daily, timely experience using the Reuters, FactSet and Bloomberg data services — the same information technology and financial data used on real trading floors.
We see a distinctly Jesuit approach to financial and wealth planning that considers what’s good for the collective as well as the individual client. We’re building a new program from scratch, so we can start with the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards ethical guidelines, but we can add requirements unique to Boler faculty and students. It can become a model program.Scott Moore, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Finance
Wealth Management/Certified Financial Planner Major
Boler will launch a Wealth Management/Certified Financial Planner (CFP) major, a natural complement to the existing BS in Finance degree which prepares graduates for careers in government and corporate finance careers. The Wealth Management/Certified Financial Planner (CFP) major will meet a pressing need for objective, ethical investment advice from a credentialed investment professional. The program will offer a narrowed specialization on investments, tax, estate and retirement planning, risk management, insurance and other financial planning subjects as related to individual investors.
Boler finance graduates are highly valued by employers for their work across global financial markets as credit analysts, treasury analysts, financial analysts, equity/bond traders, and wealth management advisors. The Boler Finance program achieved Chartered Financial Analyst designation by the CFA University Recognition Program, one of only 305 schools worldwide to earn this credential. Wealth Management/Certified Financial Planner students will draw from the good reputation, deep relationships and Boler’s longstanding emphasis on internships and experiential learning.
The Wealth Management/Certified Financial Planner (CFP) major provides an opportunity for Boler to connect students to the community and a significant need for improved financial literacy, education and advocacy. We will need to build endowments to attract top performing, tenure-track faculty and to expand co-curricular learning, including hands-on experience for future financial planners. Initiatives could include a student-led financial planning clinic, where students have the opportunity to work under the supervision of faculty in providing financial advice to clients from the community.
We see the Capital Markets Lab and other steps to give students stronger quantitative and analytical skills essential needs as data becomes the beating heart of all activity in financial markets. Our students must learn to use information and complex analytical tools to manage assets and add value for clients — corporate, governmental and individual.Lindsay Calkins, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Economics
Professional Development and Infrastructure
A new Student Success Center will be at the center of wide-ranging investments in students, faculty and learning. Your support will enable Boler to attract top-tier faculty, upgrade facilities, fund student research and invite more executives in residence, visiting corporate leaders and mentors to campus. The Classroom Innovation Fund will upgrade a ground level classroom complex and two classrooms on the main level with new technology, mobile classroom and theatre layouts to facilitate new interactive learning methods. The Student Research Fund Endowment will support students to participate in full-time, faculty-mentored paid summer research. A Faculty Excellence Fund will deliver salary and research support to attract and support high-performing teacher scholars. An Executive-in-Residence Fund will attract senior corporate talent serving as Executives-in-Residence across all academic majors.
Boler Student Success Center
Great student outcomes require an intentional, well-orchestrated four-year coordination between faculty, staff, students and partners. The Boler Student Success Center will merge academic advising, internship application and follow-up, professional development, study abroad and other co-curricular learning experiences and placement under one operation.
A 2016 Bloomberg Businessweek survey of employers ranked John Carroll University’s Boler School of Business No. 1 in the nation for student preparedness for employment. That track record shows our commitment to translating four years of student effort into a meaningful career and inspired business life.
The Boler Student Success Center requires a naming gift of $225,000 to complete the build-out, design and finish mock interview rooms and group work areas and provide technology and furnishings. Additional gifts will support personnel costs for a full-time professional advisor who will manage the Center and a full-time administrative assistant to support all of the professionals in the Center.
The Boler Professional Development Program has become a national model among undergraduate business schools, and a distinguishing characteristic of the Boler business education. The Boler Student Success Center will build on that model and engage underclassmen earlier and with more intentionality to ensure that every student makes progress toward a meaningful career.Laura Atkins, Assistant Dean Boler School of Business
Faculty Excellence and Research
Boler will build on the intellectual strengths of its faculty and attract a new generation of scholar/teachers dedicated to our core Jesuit values: that business at its best reconciles people and profit, and that all business value is measured in the larger context of sustainable communities, and human needs. By building a critical mass of such scholar/teachers, Boler will position itself at the forefront of business education for generations.
Boler has always shown an ability to anticipate and adapt to a changing world. Bloomberg Businessweek’s recognition of Boler as the top ranked school in the nation for how preparing students for careers reflects that commitment. Resources will allow us to combine classroom learning with significant project work and exposure to business leaders and challenges. We will further close the gap between theory and practice, and combine top scholars with a deeper bend of executives in residence who will enrich classroom learning and connect Boler faculty and students to business opportunities around the world.
Operating funds and endowment will allow Boler to attract and retain accomplished the most promising scholar-educators and sustain a culture of scholarly and teaching excellence. Investments in named funds for rising faculty, general faculty excellence and research funds, and chaired professorships will make Boler a magnet for top faculty and extend our impact on the world by creatingr a faculty that offers living proof that good people are good for business. Offering competitive salaries and incentives to top academic talent will allow us to target prospects for whom our distinctive approach to business education and leadership resonates.
Everything great that we have and will accomplish leads back to our faculty. Campaign dollars will mean more opportunities for collaboration, new ways for faculty and students to work with the community on important business problems, and an enhanced reach and reputation.Alan Miciak, Ph.D. Dean Boler School of Business
As a first step in a broader set of investments aimed at extending Boler’s reach, we will establish the Global Business Culture and Entrepreneurship Center at John Carroll University to develop, enlighten and empower both domestic and international students. Our aim is to create a borderless business center on campus, and at other international sites that facilitate global and international exchange. Education and community outreach programs will emphasize entrepreneurship and cultural understanding. The Center will complement existing programs in London and elsewhere and will allow Boler to establish a presence in India and other emerging economies. We will give students broad exposure to an understanding of differences in business practices, responsibilities and regulations across the globe, and deepen their cultural awareness. At the same time, we will welcome more international students and a diverse global faculty to Northeast Ohio.
Global Business Culture and Entrepreneurship Center
The Global Business Culture and Entrepreneurship Center will create a borderless business center on campus, and at international sites starting in India. The center will convene faculty and students, from Boler and partner schools, to grow joint entrepreneurship projects and greater cultural understanding.
Boler has entered into academic partnerships with two Jesuit schools in India — Xavier University and Jaipur College — that has begun to funnel students and faculty to short-term exchange programs. Xavier University, located in Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India, has a top-ranked management program with close ties with Hewlett Packard and IBM. International students work with Northeast Ohio businesses on global expansion plans, creating a chance for students to learn US business operations and culture, and for regional businesses to gain local insights from international students and faculty. Future plans call for a dual-MBA program offered jointly by Boler and its global partners.
Historically, global business exchanges have been limited and underfunded. Pilot Global Business Culture and Entrepreneurship programs have demonstrated that they can become self-sustaining, but a named-gift investment will allow Boler to scale the Global Business Culture and Entrepreneurship Center and expand beyond its initial two partnerships.
There is strong demand in India and other rapidly developing economies for the kind of broad business expertise — across all functional areas — offered at a school like Boler and John Carroll University. Our US students and faculty can benefit in the process, learning how to apply their entrepreneurial mindset in a global setting.Simran Kahai, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Economics
Global Business Exchange & Internships
Boler will gather support and interest for wide-ranging global business exchanges and internships, with the goal of expanding the perspective of domestic and international faculty and students, as well as strengthening the bonds between US and global businesses. Boler’s well-noted strengths in experiential learning and internships will be extended to enable John Carroll University students to gain exposure to global opportunities. Likewise, international students will gain more work exposure in the US. A Business Mentoring Program will pair international micro-entrepreneurs with American business owners and give American businesses matchmaking opportunities with potential overseas partners and suppliers.
As one of the nation’s oldest and most well-known Jesuit institutions, John Carroll University enjoys the reach and support of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) and its 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States and 189 Jesuit institutions of higher learning throughout the world. As global economies come to see the value of a sustainable, ethical approach to business, Boler has immediate access to thousands of potential like-minded peers and collaborators.
Making good on the promise of a Jesuit business education — and the sustainable value it encourages — will require financial support and willing collaboration. Boler alumni and business partners have much to give students in terms of understanding what it means to seek the world in the context of a Jesuit business education. Program operating support and endowments for the Global Business Exchange & Internships will ensure that future students can access perspective-transforming experience, and learn to solve the problems on a local, regional, national and global scale.
Global economies, increasingly, are urban economies. Our faculty and students have much to give and much to learn from our international students and partners. We benefit as people and an institution, but we also benefit as a region. Creating a sustainable and just economic model will be group work.Sr. Katherine Feely, SND Director Center for Service & Social Action
