Student Managers 

SAI’s seven business units are each managed by Cornell undergraduates, who have profit/loss responsibility for their respective businesses. Each agency manager reports to the President who is ultimately accountable for the operations and performance of the entire portfolio.

A number of full-time professional staff provide mentoring and support services to the student management staff, including a CEO that serves as a “Mentor in Residence.”

A formal Board of Directors sets the organization’s long-term strategic vision and serves as an experienced resource for the student management staff.
