The McDonough School of Business Board of Advisors aims to:

  • Provide a forum for communication between the school and its key constituencies: undergraduate alumni and parents, graduate school alumni, corporations who hire employees or send employees to executive education programs; and/or corporations with which the McDonough School of Business wishes to have a relationship; 
  • Advise the faculty and administration on its competitive plans, programs, and research activities; 
  • Provide intellectual capital as the school refines its competitive academic program strategies by anticipating demographic, societal, technological, and corporate changes that will impact the business school; and
  • ​Assist the Dean in developing the financial resources to ensure the future development and academic strength of the school.
