MBA Circle of Advisors

Since the early days of our program's planning in 2006, the Marlboro MBA has been inspired and counselled by a remarkable group of advisors—thought and action leaders in their fields.  Members of our Circle of Advisors appear as guest speakers, advise capstone projects, assist in courses, and play a variety of other important strategic, operational, and community roles. We are sincerely grateful for their support.
