Ciocca Center for Business, Ethics, and Society

The Carlyse and Arthur A. Ciocca '59 Center for Business, Ethics, and Society prepares students to become ethical leaders and critically engaged citizens of a society deeply shaped by business. It offers multiple opportunities to explore questions about how business can contribute to the common good and promote real, long-term sustainable value for society.

The Ciocca Center at Holy Cross offers multiple pathways for students interested in business. A liberal arts education is most valuable in today’s world when students have opportunities to connect their classroom learning to real-world environments and problems. Thus all of our pathways include significant experiential learning components. You can choose any major you are passionate about, while gaining real-world business exposure and perspective.

Offerings in the Ciocca Center are open to students of all majors and class years. Advisors offer one-on-one guidance to connect you to the resources and tools that will enable you to achieve your individual career goals. The Center sponsors three certificates:  Business Fundamentals, Entrepreneurship, and Finance and Banking. It also offers numerous workshops (i.e. Finance Boot Camp and Global Supply Chain Management), events (i.e. Women in Business Conference and Shark Tank Competition), and programs (Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Internships, and Job Shadowing).  The Ciocca Center also supports student led business clubs including The Agency, College Street Journal, The Finance Club, HC Launch, Holy Cross Student Investment Fund, Sales Group, Real Estate Club, and Women in Business Club.  For more information please visit the Ciocca Center website:
