COBEC - College of Business Executive Council


The College of Business Executive Council (COBEC) is an organization comprised of the Presidents of all registered student organizations recognized by the College of Business. This council serves as the student advisory board to the Dean of the College of Business.  They attend monthly meetings with the Dean and discuss issues within the College of Business that concern both current and prospective students.

Meetings are held once a month during the fall and spring semesters from 7:00 to 8:00 a.m. in the Executive Classroom, SFHB 430. The early meeting time mirrors the practice of early morning meetings in the business world and eliminates the problem of conflicting class schedules. Breakfast is served at each meeting. COBEC allows the Dean’s Office to have access to the executive leadership of each RSO and for each RSO president to have access to the Dean. During each meeting a discussion topic is addressed and feedback provided to the Dean.

It is that time of year when COBEC will be hosting Officer Elections for the 2019-2020 COBEC Exec Board.
