School of Business Advisory Council

The council contributes to the mission of the School of Business in two ways. First, the council provides a forum in which members provide advice, opinions, and ideas regarding a variety of issues including academic programs, student recruitment and placement, alumni engagement, and the general competitive environment affecting business education. Second, the council helps to improve the visibility and enhance the reputation of the School of Business and the University at Albany in the Capital Region business community.
