After five exciting days in Africa, I arrived in Turkey to meet prospective students and to reconnect with local alumni.  The Istanbul “meet and greet” with prospective students for our MBA program had barely begun when I was starkly reminded how interconnected our world is.

 Growing up in Europe and later living in the U.S., I was used to thinking of the world as one of hubs and spokes. The hubs were Europe and the U.S., and maybe Japan, and the spokes reached into what was universally referred to as developing countries. You would fly in and out. There was no need to connect across.  No longer.

Exciting times at SOM! It is the start of the third week of spring semester. Everyone seems to have settled really well into the new environment by embracing the transparency theme of Evans Hall. Transparency is important in today's business and society and thus it has been given special emphasis at Yale SOM. Not only is the building a majestic piece of art, its architecture certainly adds diversity to the beautiful gothic architecture you will find across Yale University.

I love new year’s eve. That time of the year when you start thinking about everything you’ve achieved, how many new places you visited, how much time did you get to spend with your loved ones and even sometimes how much you didn’t.  If it wasn’t that much of a good year, it then becomes the perfect opportunity for a brand new start. If it was, we can only make the new one be even better, because at the end it always comes down to us and how we want this new year to be.

An Ivy League education, networking with great student peers and accomplished Alumni, potential jobs in the US and abroad and many more opportunities were in the offing to everyone.

The move to Evans Hall, our new state-of-the-art campus, is a milestone in the history of the Yale School of Management, the youngest of Yale’s impressive array of professional schools.  For the first time, we have a building designed for us, built deliberately to foster our mission.  With glass panels stretching across the entire façade, the building is transparent, as business should be.  The combination of a courtyard and glass walls enables extended lines of sight, symbolic of a skill managers need to thrive in an in

Through the lectures by professors and group discussions, students from the global network league got together to understand the hottest topic in Europe and find solutions. Mr. Erik Schlie, Associate Dean of the International MBA Program and his team organized the whole week with great attention to every detail: welcome cocktail party, elaborately selected lectures, city tours and company visits…all of which made our trip enriched and meaningful. We benefited a lot through interaction with professors, discussion with our own team members or even debating on the hot issues within Eurozone.

A Ghanaian scholar, Dr. James Emmanuel Kwegyir - Aggrey once said “if you educate a man, you educate an individual, but if you educate a woman you educate an entire nation." Women are the ones who are most in contact with children during their formative years. Children who are physically or psychologically abused are likely to vent their anger on society later in life.

Me (on left), meeting with Michael (center), and Christian (right), in Singapore. I had a great trip to Asia last week where I had the chance to visit five Global Network schools in five days to give presentations on the MAM program.  My travels took me to HKUST in Hong Kong, AIM in the Philippines, UI in Jakarta and INSEAD and NUS in Singapore.  As much as I enjoyed meeting with prospective MAM candidates, the highlight of the week was seeing two alumni from the MAM Class of 2013.
