About Us

The Center for Business, Health, and Prosperity has been established to promote societal prosperity by integrating value-creating innovation and entrepreneurship with improved health. The Center leverages established programs at the Salt Lake City campus of the University of Utah, with a focus on business development (including entrepreneurship, innovation, and finance) and health innovation.

The Center also makes use of unique opportunities that exist through the growing University of Utah West Africa Programs, and collaboration with Ensign College in Kpong, Ghana, to established mission-aligned programming in one of the most vibrant emerging markets in the world. Exploration of how to engage resources at the Asia Campus is also underway, in collaboration with the Office for Global Engagement, to establish the Center as a truly global undertaking that makes use of the unique global assets of the University of Utah.
