QM International Strategy Committee

To support QM’s vision and mission, the QM International Strategy Committee (ISC) was created in early 2017 under the direction of the QM Board. As an ad hoc committee, the ISC is charged to provide oversight and guidance on QM international expansion policies and early initiatives in support of QM’s strategic objectives for international outreach and expansion.

The ISC members include outstanding individuals within the QM community and beyond. They are not only experienced educators, well-respected leaders in their fields, but more importantly, they understand issues, challenges, and needs of doing business internationally, and possess strategic business knowledge and/or actual experience in negotiating international academic or business relationships.
