International Advisory Board

The IAB provides advice, and makes proposals and initiatives for Laurea’s board of directors and other professionals in concern. Tacit knowledge regarding the development of HEIs and their collaboration with external organisations and society, in the various parts of the world, has been exchanged. Furthermore, benchmarking, evaluation and networking takes place among the IAB and Laurea.
