Management and Business Department Advisory Board Relaunched

March 26, 2014

On March 24th, the Management and Business Department (MBD) re-launched the Management and Business Resource Board (MBRB).  The board consists of alumni, parents, and local business experts, with a commitment to the excellence of teaching at Skidmore College and more specifically in the Business Department.  The Board met at the Tang Teaching museum for a morning workshop on how to make Skidmore's Business Department even more relevant to the business world and to our students. Cathy Hill, the F. William Harder Chair of Business Administration organized the event and facilitated the meeting’s highly productive and provocative discussions.
 
The MBRB will be tasked with helping the faculty to keep abreast of emerging trends in business and focused on the most important issues facing the business community.  "We want to thank all the business professionals who participated in today’s event. The multi-faceted discussions focusing on our current achievements and tomorrow’s challenges in the context of an dynamic and complex business arena will help us deliver a next generation curriculum to business majors and minors. We also hope to grow in our ability to prepare students for the transitions and transformations that await them as they encounter their next stage of life-long learning." said Timothy Harper, Chair of the Management and Business Department.  
 
"This morning's workshop was very helpful in focusing the faculty's attention on how our students are perceived in the world and how we can best prepare them for success," said Jim Kennelly, Professor of International Business and Management.
