Friday, Oct 18 2013 at 12:00 - 2:00 am EDT

YALE CLUB OF ISRAEL, YALE SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT, and TECHNION Please join students participating in Global Network Week from around the world and meet alumni from their respective schools for a social on Thursday, October 17. The evening will feature a talk on why Yale established this international program and give alumni and students a chance to meet and hear about each other's experiences. Date: Oct. 17 Time: 8pm Location: Technion-Israel Institute of Technology (details to follow) About Global Network Week (GNW) The program is an initiative of the Global Network for Advanced Management and is designed to provide students from participating GNAM schools with a rich foreign experience. Over 200 students from five GNAM partner schools participated in the first GNW pilot program in March 2013. The next the Global Network Week is taking place in Israel from October 14-18. Participating schools include IE Business School (Spain), EGADE Business School (Mexico), Smurfit (Ireland), Technion (Israel), Fudan (China), Renmin (China), and Yale School of Management (USA) and the Technion MBA program. Each participating school organizes a week long course consisting of classroom instruction and company visits around a specific theme, preferably in an area of expertise or particular relevance in the region. The Technion's them is the "Start-up Nation". With the highest number of per capita start- ups in the world, the program will look at what has transformed Israel into a start-up nation. It will be asking what are the national cultural characteristics, the echo-system, government support and venture capital approach that support the innovation mentality and the seemingly endless launching of new ventures. The students will gain insights through academic lectures, case studies, guest lectures by entrepreneurs and visits to start-up incubators in Israel. About the Global Network Initiative Today's global business environment is more tightly connected with goods and information rapidly moving across borders. NGOs, international organizations and multinational corporations run operations in more than a hundred countries. Nonetheless, local, national, and regional context still matters. Factors such as the varying roles governments play in the economy, different legal systems, cultural preferences, and approaches to diversity, affect how businesses compete in different terrains. Leaders need a global perspective to understand how markets and organizations work in these increasingly diverse and complex contexts. An initiative of The Yale School of Management, The Global Network for Advanced Management creates an organizational structure that can thrive in this developing environment. It connects each member school with diverse regions, countries, and cultures, and economies in different phases of development. The network facilitates interaction, but leaves the development of an agenda to the participating schools
