Master of Business Administration Advisory Board

Building on the success of the Industry Experts Advisory Panel convened in April 2017, the MBA Advisory Board has been formed to serve the broad purpose of generating advice of a strategic nature, from industry experts, designed to assist the Faculty of Business & Law in advancing the value proposition of the MBA for current and future students. The idea is not so much to simply generate considered feedback on our current curriculum from an industry perspective, but to generate advice and suggestions about a wide range of things involving networks, marketing initiatives, competitive positioning, guest speakers, industry linkages, scholarships, mentoring schemes and work placement opportunities, for example.
