Advisory Board

The College of Business has two advisory boards, one being the College of Business Advisory Board and the other being the Accounting Advisory Board, and both are comprised of business leaders from across the Sarasota and Manatee areas. Each Board contributes to the operation of the College by advising on curriculum matters, supporting the engagement of the faculty and students in the business community, by serving as guest speakers in classes, serving as mentors, providing internships for the students, and having students work as teams on real world issues and opportunities. Currently, the Advisory Boards are beginning discussions with the faculty about the best ways the College can demonstrate and document the impact the College is having on the local business community. This information about impact will be required by our national accreditation organization, AACSB, when they review the College for continued accreditation in 2018. The University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee and the College of Business are committed to our region’s economic development and the success of the local business community.
