About Our Advisory Council
Members of the Stanford Graduate School of Business Advisory Council play an important role in the strategy and operations of the business school. Since its founding, council members have helped shape the school’s curriculum and provided counsel to the deans on strategic, operational, and financial directions for the school.
Sandra Horbach (MBA ’87) serves as chair of the Advisory Council. Horbach is supported by vice chairs Riley Bechtel (JD/MBA '79), William Fisher (MBA '84) and William Ford (MBA'87) who lend expertise and advice in running the council.
The 65 men and women on the council are each appointed to three-year terms and are selected for their distinction in the management profession and are appointed by the president of the university. They are private- and public-sector leaders in small and large firms from the United States and around the world, and offer a wide array of perspectives and experiences.
We greatly appreciate their dedication and service.
Philip H. Knight Professor and Dean
