Global Network for Advanced Management

Our Approach

Multiply connections, build global capabilities, exceed boundaries.


Our mission is to drive innovation and create value by connecting leading global business schools, their resources, and their stakeholders.

Launched in 2012, the Global Network for Advanced Management includes 29 leading business schools from diverse regions, countries, cultures, and economies in different phases of development. A common motivation of member schools to connect is to position their students, faculty, staff, alumni and other constituencies so that they can deepen their understanding of differences and commonalities in their economies and increase their effectiveness. Member schools recognize that leaders in all sectors will be asked to contribute to the solutions of major problems that are typically complex and global.

Representing a shift beyond traditional partnership models of business school collaboration, the Global Network enables the development of innovative initiatives that leverage the schools’ comparative advantages. Leveraging network efficiencies, utilizing new technologies, building strong institutional and personal relationships, and operating with a minimum of bureaucracy, the Global Network is having a transformational effect on students, member schools, management education, and beyond.   

The Global Network multiplies the capabilities of its member schools by enabling: 

Networked Learning • Networked Inquiry • Networked Education

III. Networked Education

 

Global Network Courses

Global Network Courses are for-credit courses offered virtually by a member school and open to students from throughout the network. By bringing together MBA candidates from member schools as part of their regular coursework, the courses harness the strengths of the Global Network on a daily basis. As of March 2017, over 4,000 students from 23 schools have participated in 9 Global Network Week sessions.

Available Courses

Global Virtual Teams

Students across schools team up to work virtually on an assignment on one of the core MBA courses. This assignment provides students with real-time, hands-on practice that will be important to their effectiveness in the organizational teams of which they will be a member or leader after they graduate. In Spring 2016, EGADE, HEC and Yale SOM participated in this first collaboration, made up of 108 cross-school teams and a total of 515 students. Assumptions regarding information, perspectives, frames of reference, and preferences abound in more serious ways in teams that are global and virtual.
