Dean's Business Advisory Council


The Business Advisory Council provides a forum for interaction between the business community and the College of Business Administration at K-State. The Business Advisory Council is made up of business leaders who volunteer their time to discuss issues pertinent to the ongoing success of the CBA.

These issues include the continued relevancy of the college's curriculum in today's changing international business world, long-range strategic planning, and the support needs of the college. These individuals are thought leaders in business, committed to making the College of Business Administration at K-State a top business school and an integral part of K-State Vision 2025.

The date for the fall 2024 Business Advisory Council (BAC) meeting is September 27, 2024. The meeting is planned to be in-person, but a Zoom link will also be provided. Please click here for more upcoming meeting information.
