As part of the mission of any university based center at a research 1 institution, teaching is emphasized, along with research and knowledge development and community service. This is no different at the Goering Center.
In order to support curriculum on family and private business at the University of Cincinnati, Carl H. Lindner College of Business, John and Gloria Goering have recently endowed a professorship of family and private business.
Currently, Professor Sid Barton heads up the curriculum activities in the College. Beginning in the fall of 2012, a unique certificate program in family and private business will be offered at the University of Cincinnati, Carl H. Lindner College of Business. The curricula will include four 3 credit hour semester courses that will cover all aspects of the management of family and private business. To our knowledge, no other College of Business offers such a program.
Because the program is a certificate program, students do not have to be matriculated (enrolled) at UC to take the courses. There will be prerequisites for some of the courses, but these can be obtained in various ways at other institutions if desired.
