Business Advisory Council

The University of Alberta Business Advisory Council (BAC) offers leadership and advice to the Alberta School of Business and its managers. BAC members are respected members of Canada’s, the United States', and the international business communities. BAC members' efforts are invaluable in helping the Alberta School of Business establish and maintain strong connections to the wider community.

The Business Advisory Council was established in 1980 with a mandate to strengthen business and management education at the University of Alberta by offering leadership and advice to the Alberta School of Business and its executive team. The council serves as a vital communications link between the school, the university and the business community. Through the council’s efforts, we gain a better understanding of business in Alberta, Canada and the world.
