BAC Members on Campus for Meeting
Members of the Business Advisory Council were on campus for a day-long meeting with Dean Yen, College representatives, SEB faculty and students on December 7, 2013. Provost Thompson opened the meeting by discussing the College’s mission and current and future plans, and Dean Yen outlined the same for the School of Economics and Business. Other topics discussed at the meeting included new curriculum development at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, faculty research initiatives, and internship experiences and opportunities. In the afternoon, members of the Student Advisory Council gave a presentation on their current projects (including the new SEB Student Newsletter, the first issue of which can be found here: http://www.oneonta.edu/seb/newsletters.asp), and our Fed Challenge team gave the presentation that led them to the semi-final round of this fall’s competition.
A list of current BAC members and their affiliations is at http://www.oneonta.edu/seb/advisory-councils.asp. We in the SEB extend a sincere thank you to all BAC members who came to campus to contribute in this important meeting. Our initiatives and programs will surely improve as a result of the valuable input received.
