Gannon Celebrates Opening of Center for Business Ingenuity


Earlier this year, Gannon University dedicated the new Center for Business Ingenuity at 900 State St. in the heart of Erie’s central business district. The Center is home to the University’s Dahlkemper School of Business, Erie Tech-
nology Incubator (ETI) and Small Business Development Center (SBDC), and will facilitate a robust exchange of ideas between business students, faculty, entrepreneurs, young and expanding businesses.

Designed in the manner of a modern corporate headquarters, the Center incorporates classrooms, each with a digital dais and dry-erase walls; a seminar room with easy-to-configure chairs and tables; and a Business Information System Laboratory to promote collaboration, data analysis and simulation with broadband internet access for the movement of large datasets and six, 70-inch display panels, two of which are interactive.

The Center is the site of classes in the Dahlkemper School of Business, including the Master of Business Administration and Master of Public Administration programs and new programs in health-care management and supply chain management.

“The Center for Business Ingenuity is a place where we deliver education to students, training to businesspeople, consulting to entrepreneurs and growing businesses, and workspace and mentoring to new technology-enabled companies,” said W.L. Scheller II, Ph.D., dean of the College of Engineering and Business at Gannon.
