CIIM aims to build a special, long-term relationship with its visiting faculty. The term “visiting faculty” is, in fact, misleading. In the context of the CIIM, such faculty members are not added on or supplementary to our resident faculty. They are the main instructors of our programmes. Many of them have developed strong ties and a long-term relationship with CIIM, returning to teach here on a regular basis (several times a year) for over a decade. Their advice is regularly solicited on a wide range of academic and business matters and their input integrated with that of the resident faculty. It is fair to say that “visiting” faculty members have been integrated into our programmes much more closely than is usually the case with visiting faculty in other business schools.

This Committee acts as a sounding board and advisory body that provides a formal channel for the views of non-resident faculty members regarding CIIM curriculum, courses, and student performance to be heard. The members of this Committee also actively help CIIM broaden and deepen its international network of visiting faculty members. Membership comprises five Senior, Non-Resident Faculty members selected by the Academic Committee after consultation with the non-resident faculty. The CIIM Director is an ex-officio member of this Committee.

  • Dr Peter Clarke, Non-Resident Faculty, Committee Chairman
  • Mr Gordon Mandy, Non-Resident Faculty
  • Dr G. P. Shukla, Non-Resident Faculty
  • Dr Theodore Panayotou, CIIM Director (ex-officio member)
