Advisory Board

Advisory Board

In 2015, the Family Business Program launched a new advisory board, comprising an invited group of alumni and friends who are family business principals, entrepreneurial thinkers, and advisors in New York City and beyond. The Advisory Board plays a powerful role in the strategic growth of the Program. The board also plays a role in creating new opportunities to support student and alumni family business endeavors, serves as a champion of the Columbia Business School brand in the larger world of family-owned enterprises, and assists the Program in building a strong, dynamic, and unprecedented network of family business entrepreneurs and advisors.
