Meet The GAP Advisors

Our experienced faculty advisors support our students throughout the six-month Global Access Program (GAP) project. Each team is assigned a faculty advisor
 who works closely with the team to monitor progress, review documents and presentations, and encourage academic and professional growth. However, the faculty advisor does not directly manage the interactions with companies; that is the job of the student team. 

Many of our advisors have directed, invested in and provided consulting services to leading companies all over the world, in addition to their academic accomplishments, so both our students and our partner organizations benefit from their wealth of expertise. They are chosen both for their skills as generalists and for their specialties.
