College of Business > About > From the Dean > Advisory Council
The distinguished alumni and executives who serve on the Driehaus College of Business Advisory Council provide insights and ideas for the college to design its curricula and student services to prepare graduates for the real world of business.
The mission of the Driehaus College of Business Advisory Council shall be to assist the dean, faculty and staff with the development and execution of the college’s strategies. As advocates, ambassadors and supporters of the college’s mission and values, the advisory council provides direct linkage to some of the college’s most important external constituencies. The advisory council also will assist the dean in enhancing the effectiveness of the college’s other councils.
The Driehaus Cup, a business pitch competition for DePaul undergraduate business students, is sponsored by Morningstar through a partnership facilitated by advisory council member Laura Kohl, Morningstar’s Chief Information Officer.
The School of Accountancy & MIS at DePaul University collaborated with the Deloitte Foundation to fund academic scholarships for DePaul graduate accounting students. Championed by BAC Co-Chair Brian Ruben, the effort supports a racially and ethnically diverse student population and helps strengthen the pipeline of diverse CPA talent.
DePaul's Arditti Center for Risk Management hosted the 2022 Summer Investment Challenge, a four-day boot camp that challenged Chicago area high school students to present a stock pick presentation in front of a panel of industry judges. BAC member Cory Gunderson was instrumental in securing Protiviti’s co-sponsorship of the program.
