The FAS Center is built on three key foundational pillars: Comparative Global Finance, Global Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and Global Leadership—selected for their universal and enduring relevance to businesses around the world.
The center’s Academic Advisory Board consists of the dean, the executive director, and faculty leadership for each of the foundational pillars. This board will help steer the research efforts and academic agenda for the center.
