College of Business Mississippi State University

COB Young Alumni Advisory Board

The Young Alumni Advisory Board (YAAB) fosters closer ties between the College of Business and the business community. The YAAB provides industry feedback into curricular and programmatic issues and counsel regarding the direction of COB in relation to the learning, service, and research missions that will enhance the ability of COB graduates to compete in today's marketplace.

The members of Board help COB recruit talented students through their extensive networks and connections in the business community and their respective local communities by promoting the many successes of COB and the benefits of a business education from Mississippi State University to prospective students and their families, whether through individual communications or by participating in group recruiting efforts sponsored by COB.
