Advisory Committees

To ensure the alignment of the initiatives of the Institute with the interests and needs of all stakeholders in fulfillment of its mission, two advisory bodies exist to provide continuous advice and contributions.

The Faculty Advisory Committee consists of Carlson School faculty from across disciplinary areas and is focused on curricular elements of our global coursework and initiatives.

The Advisory Council membership comprises global leaders from external stakeholder groups including business, government, and education, including Carlson School alumni. The Advisory Council provides insights into current and relevant global management trends and issues and guides the Institute's outreach and engagement efforts as we continue to build a more interactive global network of stakeholders, generating new knowledge and collaborations toward the development of more globally mindful leaders.
