Executive Advisory Council

The Franklin P. Perdue School of Business Executive Advisory Council represents an important part of the Perdue School’s structure and is essential to its mission, curriculum and programs.

  • Comprised of prominent business and management executives, the Council reflects the distinctive needs of the School.
  • Each member cultivates external support and serves as an advocate for the Perdue School with the business community and other stakeholders.
  • A key function of the Council is to participate in the School's strategic planning process - the knowledge and expertise of the membership makes the Council a resource for seeking solutions and charting the School's direction.
  • The Council's guidance is important in the process of adherence to the exacting standards of AACSB International - the School's accrediting body.
