About Us

 

Business Council is...

Proud to be the premier organization in the College of Business. Since our establishment in 1973, we have striven to create an impact at the University of Illinois, specifically through the College of Business with which we have a longstanding relationship. With over 130 diverse members and hundreds of alumni around the globe, we serve as the family, network and platform for change-makers and leaders of tomorrow to support, develop and challenge one another.

Our Mission is...

To “create opportunities for students, lead and facilitate events, and make lasting contributions to the College of Business.” Through Business Council's three pillars: Professional, Service, and Social, we are able to provide our members ample opportunities to grow individually, help other members and the Champaign-Urbana community, and build genuine relationships within the organizations and the college.
