Our Leadership

Dean’s Advisory Council

The Zicklin School of Business benefits from the valuable contributions of its Advisory Council, composed of high-level executives, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders possessing a broad spectrum of business experience. The men and women who comprise the Advisory Board are deeply engaged in supporting the Zicklin School’s strategic goals by:

  • Advising the Dean and Zicklin School administration and faculty on strategic plans and program and research initiatives;
  • Providing a link between the School and those key constituencies with which the School seeks to strengthen or build relationships, such as undergraduate alumni and parents, graduate school alumni, corporations who hire graduates or send employees to executive education programs, and corporations whose industry practices or business models might enhance curriculum content or broaden student options;
  • Providing School administration with crucial real-world perspectives on the evolving demographic, societal, technological, regulatory, and business factors likely to have an impact on the School; and
  • Helping to cultivate the financial resources that will enable the School to execute its strategic plan to ensure continued academic strength and relevance.
