Programme Advisory Boards

Each Programme Group is supported by an Advisory Board, representing external expertise.

The advisory board comprises the Program Director, the Associate Dean of Education and a number of external stakeholders. The Advisory Board advises on the overall strategy and direction of current programs, including the follow-up of ILO measurement data and changes in the program syllabi, and the potential of new programs. The Advisory Boards meet twice a year.

Each advisory board consists of between 5-10 individuals representing a relevant mix of competence from industry; including international outlook and experience. Depending on the programs in focus, this indicates a mix of members from the public, private, as well as third sectors. At least one member of the Advisory Boards should be a JIBS graduate. 

Depending on whether there is a specific topic on the agenda for the Advisory Board, one or two purposefully selected faculty members involved in teaching the program can also be invited to the meeting.
