Business Advisory Council
Our college’s Business Advisory Council provides guidance, advice and support to the dean to help the college achieve its goals. The Council, comprised of business leaders with a passion for our college and our students, builds and sustains a strong foundation for collaboration and communication between the business community and the College of Business & Economics. The Council serves as an advocate for the College’s mission, values and academic programs, and as ambassadors who extend the College’s reach into the wider community. Additionally, the Council advises the College on matters of curriculum, programs and initiatives.
Input from the Council has been instrumental in shaping the curriculum and ensuring coverage of emerging business issues such as online course delivery, determining which “soft skills” to prioritize, risk management and ethics. As such, the Council adds significant value to the College's ability to offer contemporary programs that serve the business community. Both undergraduate and MBA students benefit from Council input on emerging professional and employment trends.
The Business Advisory Council meets as a group two times during the academic year. Individual members meet more frequently on an ad hoc basis with the dean and other COBE leaders to pursue key strategic initiatives.
