Advisory Board

Full-time Accounting faculty members at College of DuPage meet periodically with an advisory board made up of business professionals from both public accounting firms and private industry. Members of the Accounting Program Advisory Board provide valuable input and feedback regarding the skills necessary for success in the accounting field. They also assist in the ongoing evaluation of COD's Accounting program courses, certificates and degree programs. This evaluation helps to maintain the quality and professional relevance of the Accounting program.
