As senior scholars in the field of international business, AIB chapter advisors provide professional consulting services to the chapter chair and other members of the leadership team.
A member of Wayne State University’s faculty for more than 40 years, Yaprak’s association with the AIB goes back to his days as an undergraduate student at Indiana University in the late 1960s. He has served in many roles within the AIB, including as the organization’s executive secretary in the 1990s, when the AIB’s Secretariat was located in the Mike Ilitch School of Business.
