Governance Framework

Fundamental to good governance is the need for a strong advisory board. While operating within the overall university structure, SFU Business has established a Dean's External Advisory Board to assist in the accomplishment of its mission and objectives. The individuals on the Board provide expertise, guidance and direction in support of our commitment to relevant education and research, focused on the changing needs of business and the economy.

Dean's External Advisory Board

The fundamental purpose of the Dean's External Advisory Board is to advise the dean and faculty on its strategy, with a particular emphasis on:

  • enhancing relevance to the business community
  • advising on alumni activities and special programs
  • assisting with the promotion of programs and initiatives
  • advising and assisting with general advancement of SFU Business

Board members serve a three-year term.
