Yale School of Management's objective to become the first global U.S. business school has moved from aspirational to attainable. In April 2012, our school launched the Global Network for Advanced Management, marking a shift from partnerships to network and a commitment to a school-wide strategy. We added the Master of Advanced Management to extend the professional development of top MBA students from Global Network member schools. Last spring we had nearly 500 students participate in Global Network Weeks. This coming academic year, students throughout the Network can enroll in small on-line project classes taught by faculty from the Indian Institute of Management at Bangalore, Technion in Israel, IE in Spain, the Smurfit school in Ireland, Yale School of Management, and others. Dean Edward A. Snyder invites you to a special strategy webinar session to assess our progress: 1. What are the day-to-day, week-to-week implications for the Yale SOM community in becoming global? 2. Along with the programs already developed (Global Network Weeks, Global Network Events, and SNOCS), the Global Network embeds many programmatic options. Which options are most compelling? What is needed to further activate the Global Network? 3. Currently the Global Network has 27 schools and on July 1, 2015. Relevant questions concern geographic gaps to fill and optimal size. 4. What profiles of prospective students should we seek for our Masters-level degree programs? What levels of financial aid do we need to recruit the best students to our programs? 5. How do we globalize our placement and better support out students? 6. What should Yale SOM do to be recognized as the most global U.S. business school? What are we doing well? How do we improve outreach and increase our visibility? Global management education needs to be at a turning point. We hope that you can join in this important discussion and help ensure that we are making the turn.
