Young Alumni Advisory Board

Our Young Alumni Advisory Board consists of graduates of the last decade identified as outstanding ambassadors for our programs and the profession. The mission of the Young Alumni Advisory Board is to enhance the educational experience of current undergraduate and graduate students of Suffolk University’s Accounting Department and its alumni and better prepare them for careers in accounting and taxation after graduation.

Members serve on subcommittees that positively impact both student and alumni experiences.

  • The Career Development Committee works with current student groups to coordinate events that help in transitioning to the workforce as well as welcome them into the alumni community within the accounting profession.
  • The Professional Certification and Curriculum Committee suggests topics and themes relevant to the current state of the accounting profession, advises on updates or changes to the accounting curriculum to better prepare students to obtain professional certifications and transition smoothly into the working world. This committee is also responsible for developing programs that may assist in these efforts as well as monitoring the university’s performance against certain benchmarks on professional exams.
  • The Alumni Relations Committee identifies potential alumni for volunteer opportunities, develops programing opportunities for alumni and current students, and assists with the overall growth of the SBS Alumni population.
