Their collective experience covers a broad range of well-established large corporations as well as small entrepreneurial organizations in both the not-for-profit and for-profit sectors in a wide range of industries. Aside from their general management operating experience they each have deep functional experience in the broad spectrum of management disciplines including marketing, sales, production, research and development, logistics, human resources, finance, accounting, and administration.
The Corporate Advisory Council (CAC) helps SolBridge students to focus their careers on the rapidly growing economies in Asia and to obtain practical understanding of the unique cultural aspects that impact doing business in Asia.
