Advisory Board

The MSF Advisory Board consists of companies that believe the program is a source of top talent for their organizations. For the academic year 2019, approximately 65% of MSF students accepted a final internship or a full-time position at a Board company.  The Board guides and assists the Program in recruiting, educating, and mentoring students. Board levels are based on hiring activity over the last three years. Maroon board members have provided full-time/post-graduate employment to MSF students within the last three years.  Silver board members have hired MSF students as interns within the last three years but have not yet hired an MSF student for a full-time position.  Bronze board members have a strong interest in hiring MSF students in the near future.
