The Department of Finance attempts to integrate advice available from our alumni, employers, supporters and industry leaders to provide the most relevant training and opportunities for our students and faculty. To aid this, we have provided a structured environment for the exchange of ideas through the Pamplin Finance Advisory Board since 2007.
The Advisory Board assists along the following dimensions by providing the department with a better level of interaction with its alumni and supporters:
- providing students with a placement network and making them aware of placement opportunities
- providing suggestions on or additions to the undergraduate and graduate curricula
- assisting the department with long-term strategies and planning
- assisting with the recruitment and retention of outstanding students/faculty by funding scholarships, professorships, and operating expenses.
