Dr Sarah Dixon, dean of the School of Management, said:  "International strength on our board is an important part of retaining our top Financial Times rankings.  I am continually impressed and grateful that our board members not only give us their name but actively turn up at board meetings and events – from as far afield as China.
"Their contribution helps us understand first-hand how businesses are responding to current challenges – and the role that a business school can play in supporting them. They are also a fantastic resource for our MBAs and other students, sharing their expertise in careers advice and guest lectures."
