Dedicated and caring professionals improving business education for the future by providing advise regarding today’s issues.


What is the Executive Advisory Board?

The John Cook School of Business relies heavily on advisory boards, composed of business professionals, to provide advice and feedback to all of our departments and programs. The Executive Advisory Board (EAB) advises the dean regarding the entire operations of the school.

The board meets on a regular basis, three to four times each year.

The members of the Cook School’s advisory boards offer input for program review, may serve as outside judges of student work in selected courses and offer feedback on alumni performance in the professional world, post-graduation.
