About UBC Sauder

Faculty Advisory Board

Behind the UBC Sauder School of Business are some of Canada’s top business minds serving on the Faculty Advisory Board.

This group of high-level executives provides integral support to the school by advising the dean, management and faculty on strategies and programs.

They offer invaluable expertise and serve as a critical sounding board in the development of new ideas and initiatives that support the school’s strategy. The board also builds the school’s relationships and networks, working with the business community and various other stakeholders locally, nationally and around the world.
