Created in 1989, IESE's International Advisory Board (IAB) comprises prominent business and civic leaders from Europe, the United Kingdom, the Americas and Asia. The IAB meets periodically to review global developments in humanistic and management issues and discuss challenges and opportunities.
Last March, the members of IESE's newly formed U.S. Advisory Council held its inaugural meeting at the Barcelona campus. The group includes 16 U.S.-based business and civic leaders from diverse sectors, as well as Dean Jordi Canals and IESE faculty and staff members. The council's mission is to help guide IESE's development in the United States from its New York Center, opened in April 2010.
