Advisory Board

The College of Business is pleased to announce the formation of its first advisory board. The Board consists of business leaders from many different types of profit and non-profit organizations in the Sarasota and Manatee region. The business leaders will assist the College as it goes through the process of becoming separately accredited by the AACSB. The Board will work closely with the faculty as it reviews the current undergraduate business curriculum and begins to design a new curriculum for implementation in the Fall semester of 2014.
