Training Business Leaders of the Future
The E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration houses three centers and two institutes: The Wall Center for Excellence, The Clay Brittain Jr. Center for Resort Tourism and the Grant Center for Real Estate and Economic Development, the Each 1 Teach 1 Institute and the Community and Business Engagement (CoBE) Institute.
The Clay Brittain Jr. Center for Resort Tourism was created to conduct research on tourism and to bridge the gap between CCU's resort tourism management program, the tourism industry and the resort destination area.
The CoBE Institute is a student-led organization that bridges the gap between the classroom and workplace experience by pairing high-achieving undergraduate business students with real-life business consulting projects.
The Each 1 Teach 1 Institute partnered with the Wall College of Business and the Spadoni College of Education for the purpose of helping at-risk youth in the community overcome obstacles by giving the participants the skills they will need to succeed academically, personally and professionally. One of the main goals of the institute is to help current participants develop the skills they need to teach the next generation how to succeed.
The Grant Center for Real Estate and Economic Development conducts and publishes research on local, regional and national economic trends, statuses and forecasts, and hosts a variety of economic summits and events. The center has been a valuable source of information for the community and media outlets.
The Wall Center for Excellence is instrumental in helping students cultivate and develop the skills they need when entering into the workforce, such as resume writing and fine-tuning interview skills, or helping place them in an internship that corresponds with their career choice and/or major.
