Global Leadership and Management Advisory Board

The Global Leadership and Management (GLAM) Department is a diversified and highly accomplished department within the College of Business Administration. The department offers students a wide range of study areas including international business, global leadership, human resource management, strategic management, industrial organizational psychology and workforce development. The International Business Institute is a cross-disciplinary unit which supports the College’s efforts in promoting International Business Education within the College.


In order to ensure excellence, UMSL has created a Global Leadership and Management Advisory Board consisting of a select group of senior level executives/managers from local, regional, and international organizations with the purpose of providing advice, assistance, direction, and insight to the GLAM Department and the International Business Institute. The Board will support the mission of the GLAM Department and the IB Institute – to create and disseminate knowledge through teaching and research, and to serve our students, our profession and the business community.
