2006 Annual CIBER Advisory Board Meeting
The MSU-CIBER’s advisory board gathered for its annual meeting on Friday, September 15, 2006. General issues that were covered included the State of MSU-CIBER 2006, the recent grant competition which resulted in MSU-CIBER being ranked #1 among a competition of the nation's leading business schools, and strategic planning to achieve the greatest impact and reach to our constituency groups (i.e., business executives, public policy makers, scholars, and students). The specific agenda included presentations by Tomas Hult, Director of MSU-CIBER (on the State of MSU-CIBER 2006); Chris Holman, Michigan’s Small Business Advocate (on MSU-CIBER’s external role in the Michigan business environment), and A.J. Singh, Study Abroad Director of the Broad Business School (on MSU-CIBER’s internal role at MSU). During lunch the keynote speaker and Dean of the Broad Business School, Robert Duncan spoke about the college’s internationalization efforts and the value of MSU-CIBER in achieving the college’s goals. As always, the esteemed set of board members provided great advice, suggestions, and encouragement throughout the day. The next meeting of the advisory board will be Friday, September 14, 2007.
