Executive issues

The Advisory Board advises the Dean and the Faculty's Management Team on a number of issues such as:

  • Central mission, strategies and action plans regarding research, education, talent development and knowledge exchange
  • The portfolio of degree programmes and its further development
  • The internal distribution of funds
  • Organizational structure
  • Our global outlook and other strategic collaborations

External advisors

The Advisory Board consists of external members representing both central employers of the Faculty's graduates and academic institutions of research, education and knowledge exchange – primarily at an international but also at a national level.

The Advisory Board is scheduled to meet once a year.
