John Board is the Dean of Henley Business School. As well as managing the strategic and operational development of the Business School, John has a particular interest in the development of Management Education in the aftermath of the financial crisis. Before assuming the position of Dean, John was Director of the ICMA Centre, University of Reading.
His research has always stressed the applied nature of the subject and has focused on the real world implications of theory and practice. This work has ranged from asset selection models, through derivatives pricing to, latterly, the effects of market regulation and investor behaviour on the efficiency of markets. He has a long record of interaction with financial markets and regulatory bodies (including the London Stock Exchange, the FSA and the European Commission) and he has also acted as advisor and participant to several investigations by the House of Commons Treasury Committee. Before joining the ICMA Centre, John spent 15 years on the faculty of LSE. John’s teaching experience includes MBA and executive development in the UK as well as in over 20 countries including Argentina, China, Russia, Malaysia, India, Kenya, Libya, Qatar and the UAE. His research stewardship includes the successful supervision of numerous PhD students.
