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 32 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 Weeks

Global Network Weeks give students and faculty the opportunity to pursue intensive study at another network school, in a focused course that leverages the perspectives, programs, and faculty expertise of that school. Alongside their counterparts from elsewhere in the network, students attend classes, tour local businesses, and meet with experts focused on current business problems. Learn more about Global Network Weeks.

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. Assumptions regarding information, perspectives, frames of reference, and preferences abound in more serious ways in teams that are global and virtual. Learn more about the Global Virtual Teams Course.

Collaborating in Executive Education

The Certificate of Excellence in Global Business program was a collaboration among 19 schools in the network. We are concluding this program to make space for new and exciting collaborations across the network.
