Advisory Council Leadership

The network of Quadriga University Berlin, consisting of high-ranking representatives from media, business and politics, is embedded in the professional world. Included in the network are the board of trustees, advisors, a mentor group, alumni of the university a s well as scholarship and practice partners.

This network ensures the university is closely connected to current and future questions facing professionals, maintaining the practical value of learning content.

Tasks of the Advisory Board

The overarching task of the Leadership Advisory Board is to keep an eye on the current and future challenges managers are often facing. Especially in the respective areas of the MBA specialisations. The board incorporates findings from the practical field into the design of our degree programs and the courses. In addition, it supports the research activities of the Quadriga University of Applied Sciences Berlin.

The Advisory Board members also support the students as mentors in questions of individual career planning, provide practical insights and relevant contacts to an extended network. As lecturers, the Advisory Board members also make a valuable contribution to practice- and application-oriented teaching and thus complement the academic profile of the MBA Leadership.
