The International University of Monaco convened its newly created Scientific Council on Tuesday, May 30. This body complements the governance structure of the institution, which had already established its International Advisory Board (IAB) on issues of strategy, growth, attractiveness, positioning and development.
The IAB is chaired by a Monegasque, Professor Pierre-André Chiappori, a world-renowned Professor of Economics. The Scientific Council, chaired by Professor Michel Pham, Professor at the Business School of Columbia University in New York, is dedicated to advising IUM on issues related to its research and to the steering of its faculty, its professors and its publishing activities. The Board also looks at matters related to the development of expertise in training activities or that may prove useful to companies, especially those in the Monaco area.
One of the themes addressed was the development of the attractiveness of the IUM for young international research faculty and the creation of research chairs financed by companies and working in various sectors of the Principality.
Also on the agenda is the preparation of the third edition of the scientific symposium devoted to the management and marketing of luxury, to be held in Monaco in April 2018 and organised by the IUM with the support of the entire INSEEC group.
All the members of the two committees ended the day with a dinner at the restaurant Le Castelroc in Monaco Ville.
