Business Advisory Council

The Business Advisory Council is dedicated to the continuing progress of Southern Connecticut State University’s School of Business. The role of the Council is two-fold: first, members provide advice, opinions and ideas regarding a variety of issues to the Dean, including programs, recruitment and placement, development and the general competitive environment affecting business education. Second, the Council helps to improve the visibility, enhance the reputation, and build support for the School of Business in the business community.
