Dawn Global was founded with the objective of solidifying Dawn Advisory’s impact on the world. Conceived in the summer of 2020 by current and past presidents Bea, Marie-Claire, Rennie, Sophie, Till and Yujie, Dawn Global aims to facilitate the growth of Dawn Advisory, better manage knowledge sharing, and create long-lasting impact through the branches.


The board comprises four departments: Growth, Innovation, Operations, and Strategic Alliances. Dawn Global serves as the bridge between the branches, members, and external partners.

As an organization, Dawn is constantly expanding. Through the Growth Department, Dawn will manage current branches, inter-branch relations, and spearhead the growth of Dawn Advisory to other top tier business schools.


The Innovation Department is dedicated to giving all Dawn members a platform to raise any initiatives to improve their experience within the association. Through internal communication and feedback generation, the Innovation department aims to empower members to shape the culture and processes required for the success of Dawn Advisory.


Dawn Global is currently growing and building a structure that will enable long term growth. The goal of this department will be to create smooth communication and organisational tools that will ensure maximum efficiency across the whole organisation.


As the organization matures, Dawn Advisory hopes to establish strong partnerships with external organizations, such as VCs, consultancies, and other student associations. The Strategic Alliances department will serve as the touchpoint to liaise with external partners to ensure sustainable internal and external growth.
