Advisory Board

The Business Advisory Board assists in promoting the Zeigler College of Business to the business community, augmenting the college’s existing career counseling and placement services, providing the faculty with continuing opportunities for interaction with the business community, and sharing special insights through classroom presentations. Although fundraising is not a purpose of the Board, a natural result of the Advisory Board has been financial support for many of the Zeigler College of Business activities.
