Scientific Advisory Board

The Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) of the Faculty of Business and Economics meets for a Site Visit once a year. The University of Basel's SABs aim to support the organizational units in striving for research excellence and in their quality development. To do so, recognized experts from outside the university (peers) assess the quality and innovativeness of research and make recommendations from their external perspective.
