Student Advisory Board

The Student Advisory Board (SAB), established by the PCSB in 2013, is a collaborative effort between student leaders and the PCSB Dean’s Office to maximize the value of the undergraduate experience within the School of Business. The SAB is composed of students of the respective PCSB clubs and organizations. Members meet bi-weekly, and the president of the Future Friar Executives Board (FFE) facilitates the meetings. SAB, in collaboration with FFE, organizes events, for example, a schoolwide barbecue to celebrate the end of the school year. These events bolster the School of Business community environment, which is further improved by SAB when it acts as a sounding board for student concerns on campus.

PCSB Student Club Events

At the end of the 2014-2015 academic year, the Student Advisory Board looked back with a sense of great accomplishment at its achievements. Below are some of the year’s highlights.

  • The PCSB BBQ Bash was an exciting way for students to unwind and have a good time in a business school social setting. Popular attractions of the event were massage tables, a caricature artist, and an inflatable obstacle course.
  • The Investment Forecast Forum, staged by the Providence College Investment Club, was a high-profile event featuring keynote speaker Russell Jeffrey, the founder, CEO, and CIO of Providence Investment Management, LLC; an impressive panel of investment experts, including representatives from Mariner Investment Group and Prime, Buchholz & Associates Inc.; and a PCSB faculty member. A networking session followed the panel and offered the opportunity for students to talk with experienced industry leaders.
  • The PCSB senior night and hockey watch party was an incredibly exciting night, as business major seniors and other students watched the PC men’s hockey team defeat the University of Nebraska Omaha Mavericks to advance to the National Championship game against Boston University and eventually win it all.
  • The Providence College Accounting Association held a lecture on the topic of professional interviews led by John Formica ’81, partner with PricewaterhouseCoopers, and other student leaders within the Accounting Association to demonstrate some of the critical mistakes most commonly made and the key items that highlight success to a hiring recruiter.
