Description

No longer a behind-the-scenes player but an integral member of the senior leadership circle, today’s business officer fulfills roles ranging from truth teller, exemplary manager, and guardian of resources to town crier, sheriff, and strategist. CBOs provide critical business, financial, and administrative leadership, as well as strategic guidance that enables institutions to realize their missions of teaching, research, and public service.
