Centers and Facilities

Business schools open new research centers and learning facilities.

DePaul University’s Driehaus College of Business in Chicago, Illinois, recently launched its John L. Keeley Jr. Center for Financial Services. Funded by a US$3 million gift from the family of the late finance executive John L. Keeley Jr. and the Keeley Family Foundation, the center will support financial academies such as the Wealth Management Academy that trains students in private portfolio management and financial planning. The center also will select students from the academies as Keeley Scholars who will have access to professional development workshops, mentorships, internships, and networking opportunities with the center’s industry partners.

The Fowler College of Business at San Diego State University (SDSU) has opened the Center for Advancing Global Business (CAGB). Home to SDSU’s Center for International Business Education and Research (SDSU CIBER) and Charles W. Hostler Institute on World Affairs, the center will support academic research, international internships and study programs, and consultancy projects with local businesses, among other programs.
