Providing a doorway to modern business
Learning — and teaching — at the speed of business requires an insider’s understanding of its constantly evolving and sometimes volatile landscape. This is why the School of Business has established an advisory council to provide guidance to its faculty, staff and administration, and by extension provide our students with an accessible resource for academic and career growth.
Members of the Dean’s Advisory Council bring decades of experience and leadership, and provide crucial insight into a broad scope of global trends in management, marketing, finance, accounting and entrepreneurship. They also act as liaisons to a number of leading companies, including Ernst & Young LLP, Deloitte & Touche, Aetna, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Ion Bank.
In addition to sharing how they approach various challenges and trends, council members assist students from all business programs with mentoring, job shadowing, internships, career placement and other activities. With the permission of their department chair and school dean, students may participate in projects with council member companies, and also have the chance to display their work. These exchanges allow highly successful business men and women to gauge the skill sets, talents and interests of current Quinnipiac students.
