Advisory Board

The advisory board is an important source of inspiration for Business School Pforzheim. It advises the Dean's Office on strategic orientation and the advancement of research and teaching.

Successful alumni - leaders from business and society - can be recommended for membership in the honorary advisory board. The advisory board elects a board of directors, which currently consists of Michael Baumgärtner (chairman), Martin Frick, Henrik M. Lingenhölin and Michael Marbler. The board of directors and the members accompany the development of the school and actively shape its future.
