The Carroll School of Management at Boston College has named James E. Joseph, dean of the Madden School of Business and doctoral candidate at Le Moyne College, as its inaugural Ignatian Global Carroll School Fellow.
The one-year fellowship was established to help further connect the Carroll School to the global network of Jesuit business teachers/scholars and institutions.
“As a successful businessman and leader, the co-founder of both the Global Jesuit Case Series and the IgnitEd platform, and co-chair of the Inspirational Paradigm Selection Committee, Jim Joseph is a natural choice as our inaugural Global Ignatian Carroll School Fellow,” said Andy Boynton, the Carroll School’s John and Linda Powers Family Dean.
As president and CEO of Oneida Ltd., Joseph led the company’s successful turnaround and subsequent sale to Monomoy Capital Partners. “At the time I remember asking myself, ‘What if I dedicate the remainder of my professional life to my alma mater [Le Moyne] as well as the global Jesuit community by advancing the belief that business can and must have a positive impact on society?’” Joseph recalled. His doctoral dissertation will explore collaboration within the Jesuit business school worldwide network.
This inaugural appointment involves two schools with kindred missions.
The Carroll School derives inspiration from Boston College’s distinctive tradition as a Jesuit, Catholic university, drawing upon centuries of exploration and reflection. Its students emerge as world citizens in service of others and equipped to take greater responsibility in contemporary organizations. Likewise, the Madden School of Business develops reflective individuals with an innovative spirit, who will fulfill their potential as leaders, both locally and globally, embodying the Jesuit values of integrity, compassion, and service to others.
The appointment will run through the 2021-2022 academic year.
