Utah Business History Project

One promising student engagement program at the David Eccles School of Business involves students in discovering how business leaders establish their guiding principles. Student teams conduct background research on business founders and their companies. From this material, they prepare plans for interviews to be conducted by Professor Calvin Boardman, the Bill Daniels Chair in Business Ethics. Interviews with business leaders are captured on broadcast-quality digital recordings and these life histories become the basis for case development and teaching materials. Allowing students to see and hear for themselves how business innovators make a difference in their companies and in their communities inspires students to consider what kind of leader they will be.
