Founded in 2012, the Board of Visitors for the Georgia Gwinnett College School of Business is a consortium of prominent business and civic leaders selected from prestigious regional, national and international entities.

Board members partner with constituencies outside academia to build private support for the scholarships, professorships and internships that bring outstanding students, faculty and programming to GGC. For a term of three years, board of visitors members serve as connectors, advocates and representatives of the GGC School of Business, articulating its mission and vision.
