Accountancy Advisory Board

The accountancy advisory board helps the department formulate curriculum strategy with a view to insuring its currency, applicability and relevance to the corporate community. Advisory board members also are invited to serve as mentors for undergraduate students and participate in faculty recruitment. In addition, they provide strategic advice on the outreach activities of the department in order to enhance the department's corporate relationships.  Below is a list of professionals who have current service or past service on the advisory board.
