Further ensuring industry relevance, the Bond Business School meets regularly with dedicated industry advisory boards. By lending their support, expertise and influence, the boards seek to facilitate the achievement of our mission and objectives, and their extensive networks ensure our students are up-to-date with the industry’s latest trends.
