Each year the College of Business inducts a select group of highly accomplished graduates into its Alumni Hall of Fame and Service Hall of Fame in recognition of their significant career accomplishments, outstanding service to others, and long-standing dedication to the college and its mission.

From senior-level executives at top corporations to highly successful entrepreneurs, Illinois State is proud to welcome back its 2015–2016 College of Business Hall of Fame inductees to interact with students, faculty, alumni, and industry partners.

Their accomplishments and commitment to excellence not only reflect their professional dedication and service to others but also add value to our programs and the Illinois State brand for all of our graduates.

Holding this induction ceremony and luncheon during Business Week provides students, faculty, and other alumni the chance to interact with the inductees and learn from their experiences.
