The Dean’s Council of Excellence provides an opportunity for alumni and friends to become engaged with the College of Business, to use their influence, networks and affluence to advance the college’s goals and to participate in ensuring future success. As we celebrate more than 100 years of providing quality business education, we are also driving the reinvention of what it means to be a college of business that develops work-ready future innovators and leaders. The council promotes a positive image and good relations with business students, alumni, business partners, and across the OSU campus, as well as with the state, region and nation. Membership on the Dean’s Council of Excellence is by invitation only.
