The Graduate School Advisory Board was founded on 12 March 1998 and currently has 14 members. It consists of representatives of local council, science and economy.
The Advisory Board advises and supports the Graduate School, not only financially in providing sponsors as well as marketing support, but also in helping determine the direction of academic development. In decisions, for example, to set up or abolish study programs, or to change the Study and Examination Regulations, the Advisory Board plays a key role.
The Advisory Board usually meets twice each year. Students are not represented in the Advisory Board.
