Craig School of Business

Craig School of Business Advisory Council

Contributed Leadership

As a Craig School of Business student, you will have access to an incredible network of business executives from our region through the Craig School of Business Advisory Council. Members of the Advisory Council, some of whom are CSB Alumni, contribute their perspective and knowledge to our faculty and administration through monthly meetings and plans to support the vision of CSB.

The CSB Advisory Council, formed in 2006, is a huge asset for the Craig School of Business. The members are business executives from the region — including some CSB alumni — who contribute their vision and perspective for the CSB faculty and administration. The members meet quarterly and develop plans so their Council supports the program and vision of the CSB and its students. The initial Council chair was Dave Shinneman, retired McDonalds owner who led the Council during the CSB’s initial accreditation from AACSB International. The members of the Council are engaged and supportive of outstanding curriculum that offer unique opportunities for CSB students.
