MBA Advisory Board
To help the MBA Program Leadership Team advance the goal of the Spears School of Business to improve the national rankings of the MBA program by becoming the trusted advisors and serving as the source of exceptional, real-world business knowledge, experience and ideas for the MBA Program.
The Board interacts with and advises the OSU MBA Program Leadership team and the Dean of the School of Business.
