Business Advisory Council

The Division of Business works in consultation with a Business Advisory Council (BAC), which comprises local and regional business executives, municipal officials, and others.

Council members meet once each quarter to discuss current issues and future planning for the division. Most recently, the BAC helped steer a review of the MBA curriculum, leading to a reengineered, modular format focusing on multidisciplinary teaching and learning.
