MBA Student Advisory Council

The faculty and the Professional MBA programs' administration select students to serve on the Professional MBA Student Advisory Council based on academic achievement and leadership potential. This special honor reflects the confidence that the faculty, administration, and fellow peers have in these students while also fostering collaboration among them.

The MBA Student Advisory Council:

  • Provides the Associate Dean and the program administration with direct feedback on the MBA experience
  • Act as liaisons between the student body and staff
  • Provide recommendations to improve current and future student experience

The council provides an opportunity for students to network and make connections beyond their classmates with colleagues across MBA programs.
