Emmanuel Business Collaborative

Principled Leadership for the Real World

The Emmanuel Business Collaborative is a center for creative learning and research, oriented toward molding future business leaders.

While the classroom can equip future leaders with the analytical tools that inform many business decisions, we understand only experience can build behaviors and traits that define ethical leadership.

Environmental sustainability. Social equity. Responsible corporate citizenship. These are issues at the heart of accountable leadership. The Collaborative believes these topics should be integrated into all business school curricula, and we strive to enhance learning in these areas by blurring the lines between the classroom and the real world.

We place interaction between future leaders and the current business environment at our core. Our activities, research and practical experiences provide future leaders with experiences meant to inform business decisions with a social and ethical context. In turn, 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.
