International Academic Council

The International Academic Council (IAC) is a steering committee that works with the SOM leadership team to assess ongoing achievements in SOM's internationalization efforts and proposes strategies for its continued comprehensive internationalization. 
The IAC is comprised of Deans of well-known Business Schools in Australia, Europe and Asia, and advises the SOM on matters pertinent to the development of the SOM as a globally-oriented business school. It plays a crucial role in our Internationalization strategy, making policy recommendations for the development of international programs, and helping to identify suitable overseas academic institutions and business corporations as strategic partners.
