Advisory Board

A Forum of Professionals!

The close connection between the IUBH University of Applied Sciences and the international service sector makes a decisive contribution to keeping the contents of individual courses of study oriented to the actual needs and developments in this international area of business.

The advisory board of the IUBH University of Applied Sciences is composed of leading representatives from the tourism and transportation sector, such as tour operators, cruise lines, hotels and airlines, renowned academics as well as personalities from politics and society at large.

The goal of the expert advisory board and its top-level members is to use their extensive network and extraordinary pool of experience to promote the continual development of the IUBH University of Applied Sciences and to ensure that IUBH students are given the quality preparation necessary to meet the high demands of the service sector. The regular dialogue between campus and business is an essential contribution to tailoring the courses to the current needs of an increasingly globalized industry.
