Finance Advisory Council

The Finance Advisory Council (FAC) brings the professional and academic communities together by fostering communication between the faculty of the Finance Department and professionals in the field.  This ensures that the College of Business Finance curriculum is up-to-date and meets the needs of the dynamic business environment.

Made up of alumni and friends, the FAC uses its broad network to open doors for students to learn through internships and, after graduation, secure permanent positions in a variety of finance fields.  

Council Activities

  • The FAC meets bi-annually in the spring and the fall.  
  • Members aid in arranging industry professionals to make in-class presentations.
  • Members serve as professional contacts for students seeking internships or permanent positions.
