Business Advisory Council

The Goddard School offers invitations to WSU alumni and friends to serve on our Business Advisory Council.

The council provides:

  • A link between management education in the Goddard School and management practice within the business community
  • Advice on present and proposed programs and activities in areas such as curriculum, executive education and degree requirements
  • Opportunities for faculty and students to become involved with the business community through internships, service learning and management consulting
  • Opportunities to work with the dean and other members of the Goddard School faculty and staff to promote the school, build its recognition in the community and obtain new resources to enhance opportunities for students and faculty

The full council meets 3 times a year at WSU. For questions or comments about the council, contact Jeff Steagall or Mary Ann Boles.
