The International Advisory Board

New York Skyline

A distinguished group of experts help raise our profile, shape our programmes, and maintain our excellence. 

The Advisory Board is made up of senior executives and academics from a corporate background whose close connections help ensure our graduates are prepared for the real world of business.  

The members of the Advisory Board play a vital role in the School’s strategic direction, offering independent guidance on the key issues that affect the School, its relationships and its development. The Board members’ particular areas of expertise mean the School benefits from having spokespeople in a variety of fields – from business and academia to government and the voluntary sector.
