Business Advisory Council


The College of Business works closely with its Business Advisory Council, a group of alumni and friends who provide valuable expertise, guidance, and support for the continuing development of high quality business programs at East Carolina University. Its role is advisory to the dean and faculty.

The Business Advisory Council also helps the College of Business foster ongoing relationships with the larger business community. It formally meets two times per year. In the interim, members work with the College of Business, singly or in groups, based on individual skills and interests.
