Salary & Benefits: Non Applicable

Imperial College Business School drives global business and social transformation through the fusion of business, technology, and an entrepreneurial mindset. As part of Imperial College London, a leading global University in science and technology, we work collaboratively to tackle today’s critical societal issues, including climate change and sustainable development, digital transformation, economic growth, and an equitable access to healthcare. We are also leaders in technology-enhanced, innovative higher education practices, and our multimodal hybrid education model has been a critical element of our response to Covid-19 and will be an important source of future opportunities.

Our strategic vision for 2028 is to be a world-leading business school with a diverse and supportive research and learning environment that leverages technology and entrepreneurship to benefit business and improve society. We nurture strong core academic disciplines in business and economics and combine them with the College’s technical preeminence to investigate novel solutions, guide education, and engage with society to drive transformation. By bringing these novel solutions to the classroom, we inspire brilliant minds to be the world’s future leaders and drivers of change.

The Business School Advisory Board offers strategic support and advice to the School and to the Dean, Professor Francisco Veloso. It comprises high-level, external representatives of business and society. As some members complete their mandate, we are seeking to appoint several new members to join the Board.

Advisory Board Members should have an intellectual connection and interest in the mission and strategy of the Business School and of Imperial College, as well as in the role and impact of academia on business and society. They should also bring experience in developing and executing long term-strategy in large, complex organisations, alongside strong international networks. Knowledge of international markets is desirable, particularly in Asia, South America, and the European Union. The Business School is keen to engage with individuals from a range of professional backgrounds to assess how they might contribute to the Advisory Board. Experience in industries and firms that typically engage with business schools, and hire their graduates, or a track record across some of the strategic themes noted above, is particularly welcome.
