Department of Management Advisory Board

The Department of Management Advisory Council is comprised of BGSU alumni, business professionals, individual supporters, and faculty who support the activities of the Department.  The Council draws upon their professional expertise to advise the Department Chair and faculty on strategic planning, student mentorship, faculty engagement with industry, and alumni affairs.  In addition, the Council promotes the Department by highlighting the achievements of faculty, students, and alumni in their professional network.  The Council convenes at least two times per year.  Members are invited to participate in meetings and provide advice to the Chair between meetings.

Members are selected by the Department Chair.  Prospective members should spend a statement of interest to the Department Chair.  See the successful business professionals who have already made the commitment to serve on the Department of Management Advisory Council.
