About the school

Founded in 1934, the John Carroll University - Boler College of Business enjoys dual accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), a distinction held by only five percent of business schools worldwide.

The Boler College of Business adheres to principles that teach its students to serve others. The business school encourages students to become critical thinkers and use their technical skills and resourcefulness to become responsible leaders.

The business school’s list of notable alumni is seemingly unending, and a few of them include Rich Karmer (CEO, chairman, and president, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company), Elizabeth Evankovich (assurance senior, Ernst & Young), and Brandon Greene (category manager, Global Petrochemical and Acrylic Monomers).

Nestled in University Heights, a suburb of Cleveland City, Ohio, the University is only about 16 kilometres from the thriving atmosphere of downtown Cleveland. Cleveland is home to award-winning chef-inspired restaurants; a vibrant arts and music scene, and “smart” manufacturing and biomedical start-ups, creating a fun and professional environment for international students.
