Broad Based Employee Ownership

Team of office workers holding sign reading

The Broad Based Employee Ownership (BBEO) Program is ambitiously charting a path to revolutionize the way businesses and students perceive and engage with employee ownership. With a primary objective to educate both students and business owners, the program offers a unique practicum where students collaborate to develop case studies, ultimately guiding businesses through the transformative process of employee ownership conversion. Leveraging the expertise of seasoned professionals in the field, the program aims to not only provide theoretical knowledge but also to document and support real-time employee ownership transactions, offering students a front-row seat to the process. In the Fall of 2023, the program welcomed its new cohort of 4 students to collaborate with business owners on Employee Ownership Case studies.
