Alumni join International Advisory Board


We are pleased to announce that two SBE alumni have been appointed to the Maastricht University School of Business and Economics International Advisory Board (IAB). Diana Leng (alumna International Business 1999), currently Director, Group Treasury, KS Energy Services, Singapore and Geert Embrechts (alumnus Economics 1994, Law 1996) currently First Vice President, Chief Financial Officer at BGZ Bank in Warsaw, Poland.

The International Advisory Board is an international network of experts who have agreed to advise SBE in its strategic decision-making process. The IAB periodically meet to address questions such as: How can SBE be in the forefront of knowing what the important issues and challenges are in the field of Economics and Business and developing innovative solutions? Where should SBE be in ten years? What target countries or geographic areas are given priority when recruiting students? What is SBE’s contribution to society, collaboration with the city of Maastricht and the surrounding EU-region?

SBE continues to benefit from close links with its staff, alumni and the corporate world.
