Executive Advisory Board

Providing Unmatched Executive Advice to Future Bobcats

In Ohio University’s College of Business, we don’t think education means spending all of your time with your nose in a book. We believe in hands-on experience and real world advice from alumni who are top in their fields. Our advisory board serves to counsel and support the faculty, administration, and students on the college’s ultimate goals — making creative, innovative, and competitive graduates.
