Merage Centers for Excellence

Beall Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship

The Beall Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship shapes the next generation of entrepreneurs and innovators. With a pronounced focus on the particular needs of ambitious visionaries, our programs equip students with knowledge and resources to launch successful businesses.

Our center is a driving force for discussion and study of current entrepreneurial and innovation issues. Your gift today fuels a hub of activity, education, networking and practical experience. With our deep connections and strong partnerships within the greater entrepreneurial community, you are able to support a global leader in practice and output as we continue to encourage new ideas and inspired invention.

Center for Digital Transformation

The Center for Digital Transformation conducts and disseminates research on digital transformation. As a university-based center, it focuses on educating the workforce for success in a technology-intensive world.

We aim to become a vital center of influence, advancing the competitiveness and productivity of business in the digital economy. Your gift helps build partnerships between industry, community and the Merage School, while advancing research on how businesses and society should adapt to and leverage the possibilities enabled by digital technologies.

Center for Global Leadership

The Center for Global Leadership’s mission is to build leaders with a sustainable global vision. No matter the business or non-profit, every organization in today’s economy is impacted by cultural differences in some way. A successful leader thinks globally, mindful of cultural and language barriers as well as legal and political issues that affect organizations both internally and externally.

The center’s goal is to ensure students can experience foreign culture and commerce firsthand. Therefore, our primary focus is to facilitate donor support to provide such access to those Merage School students who otherwise could not afford to study abroad.

Your gift helps to create a more culturally aware student body by providing access to international contexts, further contributing to the Merage School’s objective of strengthening our global brand positioning—both for the School as well as for individual graduates as they develop broader global perspectives and a thirst for knowledge spanning borders.

Center for Health Care Management & Policy

Since 1988, the Center for Health Care Management & Policy (CHCMP) has provided a forum through which key health policy issues at the national, state and local levels are discussed among scholars, the business community, government and other influential stakeholders.

Our annual Health Care Forecast Conference serves as a unique venue for dialogue among government, business leaders, and academics that share their perspectives and forecasts on economic and political issues impacting the health care industry.

Making a gift today enables our center to build stronger ties with the health care community in Orange County and beyond by engaging in collaborative research and education efforts as well as community service programs. This includes hosting conferences and events to disseminate research findings and to promote discussion of health policy issues, as well as contributing to the health care focus within UCI’s MBA programs.

Center for Investment & Wealth Management

The Center for Investment and Wealth Management (CIWM) provides discussion, study and application of financial education for all. The Center offers leadership and serves as a resource for financial education with goals of increasing financial literacy, minimizing financial instability for the benefit of society and training the next generation of financial industry leaders.

Your gift helps to provide financial education for individuals across all socioeconomic backgrounds to:

  • Empower individuals at all stages of life to make smart financial decisions.
  • Provide opportunities for students, the public and financial services professionals to enhance their financial knowledge.
  • Connect the business community with the next generation of financial industry leaders for professional networking and mentorship opportunities.

For more than a decade, we have positively impacted over 50,000 individuals with our innovative and accessible financial literacy programming.

Center for Real Estate

Orange County’s unique tradition of large-scale, master-planned urban development projects have characterized our region for almost half a century. Today, advances in technology, environmental change, capital and infrastructure needs, housing affordability, diversity and globalization present new challenges to real estate development, investment and management not only locally but worldwide.

The Center for Real Estate (CRE) at the UCI Paul Merage School of Business continues to make positive contributions through education, academic research and meaningful industry outreach to the academic and professional business communities. Professional and student educational programs serve as an important cornerstone of the Center’s growth and vitality.

By making a gift today, you support our faculty and students in further understanding the ways in which we can harness knowledge to create a sustainable future for the built environment.
