College of Business held the inauguration ceremony of its College International Advisory Board (CIAB) on 22 October 2009. The establishment of the board marked another big step forward for the College's internationalisation drive since its accreditation by both AACSB International and EQUIS.

CIAB comprises luminaries from the business world and leading academics. CIAB acts as a steering force on internationalisation and helps CB gain external, expert inputs on its internationalisation drive, as well as offering strategic advice on the ways of strengthening the College's ties with local business.
