The Design Advisory Council serves across our design programs; including apparel design, design and innovation management, and interior design. It is an opportunity for alumni, friends, professionals and community members to engage with the design community and the design programs. Members of the advisory council use their networks, influence and affluence to advance the college’s goals and to participate in ensuring future success of the design program at the OSU College of Business. The council promotes a positive image for business students, alumni and business partners throughout the state, region and nation.
