Our Business Advisory Board, made up of senior leaders from regional, national and international business, plays an active role in helping shape our school. The board meets four times a year, helping to inform our curriculum development, student success and business development.
Chaired by Peter Markey, Chief Marketing Officer at Boots, the board features a diverse mix of individuals, including some alumni of the University, who work across a variety of industries, with extensive knowledge and expertise in their respective fields. As well as helping inform our School the board acts as a two-way platform for knowledge exchange, enabling business to gain insights from their future workforce.
Collaboration and innovation are at the core of the board and we’ll be working on a number of programmes and initiatives that enable our students success. If you’d like to find out more about the board please contact Caroline Walsh, Director, Solent Business School.
