Each year highly successful Illinois State graduates are invited back to campus to be inducted into the College of Business Alumni Hall of Fame. These distinguished professionals range from senior-level executives at top corporations to highly ambitious entrepreneurs. Their accomplishments and commitment to excellence not only reflect their professional dedication and service to others but also add value to our programs and the Illinois State brand for all of our graduates.
