 College of Business Advisory Board

advisory boardThe Advisory Board of the Austin Peay College of Business is a key factor in the acquisition of AACSB accreditation. It will serve as a “sounding board” for present and proposed programs and activities of the College, as well as identifying opportunities for business students to enrich their education through internships, mentorships, and other learning-practical work experiences. In order to build important ties and connections between the College and the business community, the Advisory Board will assist in bringing business executives into the classrooms and establish close contact with students and faculty in formal and informal settings. It will also be available to assist the Dean in the solicitation, cultivation, and stewardship of external support as well as the ongoing strategic planning process for the College.
