Business Program Advisory Board

The Department of Business Administration established a Business Program Advisory Board (BPAB) composed of leaders from local businesses/organizations and internal faculty and administrators. The group serves as an advisory and review board as the Department develops new business programs and initiatives. The BPAB is a formal representation of the ongoing relationship the Department has with the business community. The Department of Business Administration, under the guidance of the BPAB, continues to develop programs that meet the changing market needs and have a broad appeal to prospective business students.
