New Focus For International Advisory Council
Fifteen prominent business and academic leaders have been appointed to three-year terms as members of the International Advisory Council of the Association of MBAs.
Chaired by Association President, Sir Paul Judge, the International Advisory Council will provide guidance and leverage for the Association as it continues to expand its MBA quality accreditation system and global network for business leaders.
According to the Chief Executive of the Association, Jeanette Purcell, the International Advisory Council plays an important role in bringing together the three stakeholder groups: members, business schools and employers in both public and private sectors.
"Already more than half of the 90 business schools offering programmes accredited by the Association of MBAs are located in continental Europe, the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region. This is testament to the fact that the London-based Association has become increasingly international in its reach and impact.
"The new Council members bring both individual and organisational perspectives on the challenges and value of operating and marketing internationally, and recruiting the right people to sustain global enterprise.
"The International Advisory Council provides an important forum for developing closer relations between business and academia. The Council will help strengthen the Associations position by reinforcing the importance of the accredited MBA and the development of local business networks for students and graduates."

The International Advisory Council is a committee of the International Management Board (IMB) and reports to the IMB. The seven members of the IMB are also members of the Council.
