Advisory Board

The IBSS International Advisory Board was established in 2013 to provide professional insights and guidance to the Dean and Business School Management Team, as well as facilitate engagement with public, private and third-sector organisations, inform educational strategies, employment placements and a range of other activities at 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.”
