We are very thankful to Beth Allen for her successful work in IAB. The International Advisory Board consists of the world’s leading economists. IAB provides guidance on academic matters, makes all major academic decisions, and oversees the academic activities at NES. It is also responsible, through an Academic Appointment Committee, for all academic appointments and promotions.
