International Advisory Board

International Business School Suzhou

The IBSS International Advisory Board was established in 2013 to provide support and challenge to the dean and academic staff, to deliver a professional prospective, to facilitate engagement with public, private and third-sector organisations, and to provide a vigorous stimulus to educational strategies, employment placements and all other activities of the School.

"The Advisory Board continually supports IBSS by providing insight into business, industry and marketplace trends as well as facilitating collaboration and alliances. This also creates opportunities to link students with organisations."
Aleem Sheikh, Chair of IBSS International Advisory Board
