Management Advisory Board

The department of management at K-State builds strong partnerships through our Management Advisory Board. Partner companies are able to:

  • Obtain valuable exposure to the top students in the management and management information systems fields
  • Create strong recognition for their company with other management students and
  • Gain immediate access to research developments as they emerge

Partners provide the management department with advice and feedback on our programs and our strategy. Partners also participate by providing advice and counsel to management and management information systems students for their career opportunities. In addition, partner companies assist the department through their financial contributions and support. Involvement in the Management Advisory Board allows firms to participate in a variety of ways that will directly impact hundreds of students annually.
