University of Bradford School of Management, the North's top business school, has appointed a number of international business leaders to its board covering a wide range of public, private and voluntary sector experience from several continents.

Malvika Rai is owner and chairperson of IILM Institute of Higher Education in Delhi, a top 20 business school in India.  Pól Ó Móráin works with organisations internationally for the development of trade and exports - from Ireland, he is a member of the Irish Government's Export Trade Council.  Margaret Sentamu is a diversity and recruitment management consultant, non-executive director of Traidcraft and patron of a number of charities in education, health and poverty in the Global South. 
 
Delroy Beverley is director of Propertysolutions, the multi-million pound construction arm of Incommunities housing association.  Peter Foy, former managing director of McKinsey & Co UK, is chairman of Creative Tank Ltd.  Martin Hindle has a background in pharmaceuticals with board positions in Fisons and is chairman of the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust.
 
Dr Sarah Dixon, dean of the School of Management, said:  "International strength on our board is an important part of retaining our top Financial Times rankings. I am continually impressed and grateful that our board members not only give us their name but actively turn up at board meetings and events -from as far afield as China.
 
"Their contribution helps us understand first-hand how businesses are responding to current challenges - and the role that a business school can play in supporting them. They are also a fantastic resource for our MBAs and other students, sharing their expertise in careers advice and guest lectures."
