Business Advisory Council

 

The Business Advisory Council provides advice, counsel, and assistance to the leadership of the Carl H. Lindner College of Business. The Council includes a cross-section of business leaders from the Greater Cincinnati region and national business community, representing small, medium, and large companies from the public, private, and family-owned sectors. Council members are appointed to three-year terms.

Business Advisory Council meetings focus attention on the college’s progress and notable achievements, new initiatives and how they relate to business, challenges facing the academic and business community, and other areas of mutual concern. Members take an active role in Council deliberations, ultimately recommending actions that contribute to the quality of our programs and strengthen the school’s overall reputation. Members can also contribute by:

  • Educating others about the mission, objectives, and accomplishments of the college
  • Financially supporting the college
  • Volunteering for specific committees
  • Serving as guest speakers or lecturers
  • Offering individual consultation on specific problems within their areas of expertise
  • Hiring our students and graduates
  • Identifying new Business Advisory Council members
