A Competitive Advantage

The Emmanuel Business Collaborative seeks to develop strategic partnerships with local business and industry organizations who share Emmanuel’s strong commitment to social justice, diversity, inclusion and service.

A mutually beneficial partnership

The Emmanuel Business Collaborative is designed to maximize the opportunities to match businesses with the resources that can be offered by the Emmanuel Business Collaborative and Emmanuel students.

The Emmanuel Business Collaborative is a center for creative learning and research, oriented toward molding future business leaders. Partnering organizations gain valuable insights and outcomes from the various opportunities offered through the Emmanuel Business Collaborative, including yielding new knowledge and resources they can leverage to impact business results.

Advantages include:

  • Custom business consultative services
  • Establishment of an intern/employee pipeline
  • Recognition as community thought leader
  • Collaborative research initiatives
  • Access to campus resources and services

The classroom can equip future leaders with the analytical tools that can inform many business decisions, but only experience can build behaviors and traits that define ethical leadership. Our goal is to provide forums and practical experiences that will allow students to acquire these needed skills for principled leadership.

The Emmanuel Business Collaborative places interaction between future leaders and the current business environment at its core. Activities and research generated through the Emmanuel Business Collaborative will strive to provide future leaders with experiences meant to inform business decisions with a social and ethical context. These experiences will provide a framework of business practices that future leaders can leverage to integrate operations of businesses into the needs of larger society.
