Business Advisory Boards


CBM Advisory Board

Overview: The Cardinal Stritch University College of Business and Management (CBM) Advisory Board plays a vital role in the current and future life of the College.  Board members not only provide counsel and connections for the CBM Dean, but they are also challenged to invest in Stritch’s learning community through personal engagement with students, faculty and alumni. CBM board members are advocates and exemplars of the College’s mission and vision and are committed to the idea that members of the business community can and should be leaders who value people, profit and planet.

Purpose:  The overarching purpose of the CBM Advisory Board is to serve as a resource to the CBM Dean in determining the strategic direction of the College.  Further, board members are charged with supporting the Dean in creating and sustaining business programs that are rigorous, innovative and responsive to student and employer needs, as well as to local and global market and hiring trends.
