Advisory Boards

Our Team for
the successful Launch

BUDS has three advisory boards: the Financial Board, the International Research Board and the Advisory Board. The advisory boards advise and support the university in all financial matters, development issues and research structures and provide contacts in science, business and politics. The advisory councils consist of at least five members of public life, from business, politics, media, culture and science, who actively support the goals and development of the university and contribute to its success. The admission of members of the Advisory Board is decided upon by the Academic Senate on the proposal of the Executive Board. There are separate rules of procedure for each advisory board, which are laid down by the members of the advisory boards in consultation with the university management.
