Global Offerings

Yale is actively engaged with the Global Network for Advanced Management, which fosters substantive ties among the world’s leading business schools. Comprised of over 30 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

Global Network Weeks offer students the opportunity to pursue intensive study at another school, in an intensive week-long course that leverages the perspectives, programs, and faculty expertise of that school. You will join other Executive MBA students from Global Network schools around the globe to attend classes, collaborate on team projects, tour local businesses, and hear from visiting business leaders.

Students choose between many options, joining students from other participating Global Network schools. Established exclusively for Executive MBA students and a compulsory part of the MBA for Executives program, the EMBA-specific Global Network Week takes place in June of Year 1.

Global Network Courses

Global Network Week Course

These are for-credit courses offered virtually by a Global Network for Advanced Management member school and open to students from throughout the network. The courses connect students through an online platform and video conferencing for lectures and discussions. 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. These courses enroll a select group of top-tier MBA students engaged in a common effort to build management skills and by bringing together MBA candidates from member schools as part of their regular coursework, the courses harness the strengths of the Global Network.

Global Network Week Experiences

Snapshots from EMBA Global Network Week

Each June, schools across the Global Network for Advanced Management host Global Network Week, a weeklong learning experience for executive MBA students. This year, the mini-courses were moved online, but that didn't keep participants from learning and connecting. Several students in the Yale SOM MBA for Executives Class of 2021 shared insights from the courses they attended.
