The year 2022 marks the 10th anniversary of the Global Network for Advanced Management. As I reflect on the last decade, it seems that today’s global business environment is even more tightly connected than ever. To succeed, enterprises need leaders who understand how markets and organizations work in these increasingly diverse and complex contexts.
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, cultures, and economies in different phases of development. The network facilitates interaction but leaves the development of an agenda to the participating schools.
Over the past 10 years, many students across the world have benefitted from initiatives jointly developed by the 32 member schools:
- 12,090 students have joined a Global Network Week
- 4,730 students have enrolled in a Small Network Online Course
- 4,505 students have participated in the Global Virtual Teams collaboration
- 621 students have participated in the Stock Trading Game
- 387 stories have been shared via Global Network Perspectives
- 12 raw cases have been jointly produced
- 622 students have been enrolled in and completed the Yale SOM Master of Advanced Management
- 221 students have enrolled in and completed the Yale SOM Master’s in Global Business and Society
While we have made great progress collaborating and bringing opportunities to our students that we wouldn’t be able to produce on our own, we are really excited about what the future might bring in the next decade.
Deans and directors of the Global Network member schools will be meeting in Lausanne from May 26 to 28 to commemorate the 10th anniversary and set the basis of what lays ahead. They will engage in different panels to discuss diverse topics such as the race to net zero, the future of capitalism, and management education after the pandemic.
We are very proud of what we have accomplished together over the past 10 years and looking forward to advancing higher education in the following 10!
