Yale is actively engaged with the Global Network for Advanced Management, which fosters substantive ties among the world’s leading business schools. Comprised of 32 schools across six continents, the Network operates on the premise to connect 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.
Global Network Weeks
These one-week immersive experiences offer the opportunity for MBA students to learn at another school in the network for an intensive course in an area of local interest or specialization. They are open to Executive MBA students as well as those in full-time education.
Established exclusively for Executives MBA students and a compulsory part of the MBA for Executives program, the Executive MBA-specific Global Network Week takes place in June of Year 1. Students will choose between several options and join EMBA students from participating GNAM schools at the network week of their choice to leverage the perspectives, programs, faculty expertise and local corporate contacts of that school.

Global Network Courses
The flexible courses not requiring travel are offered virtually by a member school and open to students from throughout the network.

As part of the courses, groups of students from multiple member schools collaborate virtually on substantial team projects, developing teamwork skills and cross-cultural perspectives.
