Centers of Excellence

Our seven centers play a distinctive role in the learning experience of our undergraduate and graduate students.

Experiential Learning

Our six academic centers extend our focus of experiential learning from the classroom into a wide variety of co-curricular activities.

Students in our academic centers:

  • actively manage the Flyer Fund, a portfolio of equities with a value exceeding $22 million;
  • practice in a professional selling laboratory and perfect their pitches to buyers as practice for part of a class or preparation for a competition;
  • brainstorm with business professionals on how to bring Catholic and Marianist values into decision-making;
  • consult for a local for-profit or non-profit with a business opportunity or problem;
  • participate in Flyer Angels, SBA’s angel investor group, researching, performing due diligence and making investment recommendations on funding a start-up; and
  • take advantage of interesting opportunities to learn and develop skills and knowledge through practical experience.
Business Outreach

Our business research center acts as a major outreach of the School of Business Administration to the local private and public sectors. This fee-based service to the community has received much public recognition in a variety of media.

Collectively, these centers are key elements in creating lessons of practical wisdom. We invite you to learn more by visiting their websites in this section.
