Advisory Boards

Advisory Boards are groups of individuals who've been selected to help advise a business or, in our case, graduate programs regarding any number of issues, including marketing, recruiting, current industry trends, curriculum, and other important matters. They do not have voting authority, but function strictly in an advisory capacity.
Our Advisory Boards consist of professionals from various industries and backgrounds who bring a wealth of professional experience to their respective boards. If you are interested in contributing as an Alumnus of the Graduate Programs in Business or as an interested member of our business community by joining the MBA Advisory Board, please contact Ingrid Martin
