Strategic Advisory Board

A significant improvement for IMIM II has been the formation of External Advisory Board.

Composition is as follows:
• Members from Academia: Arnoldo Hax, Professor Emeritus of Corporate Strategy at the Alfred P. Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), U.S.A. and Marc Chesney, Professor of Finance at the University of Zurich.
• Members from Industry: Luis Vassal’lo, retired partner at Accenture, and Chairman of the Board of the Accenture Foundation, Paolo Tognella, retired Vice – President of Whirlpool and Cristina Sanz, General Manager of Human Resources and Member of the Executive Committee, Repsol YPF.
• Members from Regulatory Authorities / Associations and alumni: Paul Crowther, Secretary General, T.I.M.E. Association and Federico Rosales Orquera, IMIM Alumnus, Class 2006-2008.

The consortium report to the External Advisory Board on programme statistcs, applications, procedures, employment and alumni data. This also includes other reports such as those submitted to the EACEA. Besides, reporting on quality, the External Advisory Board makes valuable contribution towards management of the programme and often the consortium seeks valuable advice from the EAB. For example, advice on positioning and future direction of the program has resulted in the many of the improvements presented in this application. External quality assurance mechanisms also include an External Examiner that has been appointed by the consortium and approved by Heriot-Watt University Senate, to report on programme quality and academic standards.
The External Examiner has an oversight of all work undertaken by students that contribute to an award. Reports from the External Examiner are submitted to the Executive Committee and considered in accordance with the normal procedures of HWU.
Additionally there is a formal external pedagogical quality audit process being implemented for IMIM as a way to maintain a strong correspondence between the expectations of the international/European market for finishing master students in the field of industrial management.

The IMIM programme has also been awarded the T.I.M.E (Top Industrial Managers for Europe) accreditation by the T.I.M.E. international association. It has been the first and only program to have it for several years and it remains the only one in industrial management.
