The Board creates a strategic bridge between the latest in technology and design thinking and business.
In addition, the School of Economics, Finance and Marketing Advisory Board consists of high-profile industry representatives who ensure the School's links with industry standards and practice remain current.
Industry experts are invited as guest lecturers to expose you to current industry developments in finance. The School also extends links with industry by appointing adjunct professors who are selected based on their industry achievements.
