Global Business School Network

Global Business School Network Billions spent on improving conditions in developing countries are wasted because there aren't enough well-trained local managers. Uniquely, GBSN links business schools worldwide that enhance the capacity of developing country management schools.
(5)

The Global Business School Network is a nonprofit organization that partners with business schools, industry, foundations and aid agencies to improve access to quality, locally relevant management education for the developing world. With a growing network of over 100+ leading business schools on 6 continents, we foster cross-border networking, knowledge sharing and collaboration both within our network membership and with the broader business education and development communities. Our international events and capacity building programs engage our network members to advise, train and mentor regional educators. And through publication, partnership and speaking opportunities we advocate for the importance of management education in economic and social development efforts.

Mission: GBSN is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Washington DC working to strengthen management education for emerging markets through a unique global network of business schools. The network helps to provide the rigorous yet practical local training business and management students demand, resulting in a stronger pool of local leadership and management talent for all sectors.

The Disruptive Impact of COVID-19 On Supply Chains
September 1 | 2:30-3:30 pm US Central Time

🌏The University of Illinois' Gies College of Business, a GBSN member school, invites you to attend its webinar, “The Disruptive Impact of COVID-19 on Global Supply Chains.”

🌍Organizations typically operate their global supply chains based on fairly predictable and highly probable situations. When an unpredictable and highly improbable situation arises, supply chains will be disrupted. In this webinar, Nehemiah Scott, teaching assistant professor of business administration, will discuss the supply chain’s susceptibility to risk and describe several ways in which typical supply chain processes were disrupted by COVID-19. He will also identify important investment options that organizations can pursue in their quest for supply chain recovery and resilience.

Register for the next webinar in the 5-part webinar series on the Business Proofing of Business Schools hosted by GBSN, EFMD Global Network, and XOLAS this Wednesday, August 26th at 5 am EDT/11 am CEST! This webinar series will provide guidance on how to take a proactive posture when dealing with the world during and following the COVID-19 crisis.

For this webinar, you’ll join Ulrich Hommel of XOLAS, Robina Xavier of QUT, John Vargo of Resilient Organisations NZ, and Baback Yazdani of NBS as they explore the benefits of a proactive posture when dealing with these environmental uncertainties. Should it involve the deliberate build-up of resilience (ability to “bounce back”) or even anti-fragility (ability to profit from uncertainty)? What does this concretely imply in terms of pricing policies, degree delivery choices, etc?

A Pandemic Silver Lining? Reimagined Career Services For Students

👩‍💻Going online due to the coronavirus pandemic has had many negative consequences but there is at least one silver lining: reimagined career services for students. Read this article to learn more from Dr. John T. Delaney, Dean of GBSN Member School Kogod School of Business (American University) on ways in which the university's efforts to prepare students for careers and the workforce have evolved since the start of the pandemic - and how what they’re learning today might inform their strategy over time. http://ow.ly/ZHvk50B3Q67

Innovative approaches to career services may allow higher education to be more responsive to the diverse needs of students graduating into an increasingly complex and challenging labor market.

Can Business Education Change the World?

From Our Founder

“In over 40 years as a development economist at the World Bank I saw vast amounts of money, resources and human potential go to waste. It wasn’t just money these emerging markets needed, but human capacity to effectively manage resources and productively lead teams.”

Looking around, I found few efforts to build management education for developing nations. And I knew that to end the cycle of poverty, these emerging markets countries needed leaders who could apply international best practice with local relevance.

From this, the Global Business School Network (GBSN) was born. Starting as a program of the International Finance Corporation at the World Bank, where I was Chief Economist at the time, we began with a focus on Sub-Saharan Africa. Today GBSN is an independent 501(c)3 organization with member schools on 6 continents and a global mission.

Since 2003, we have been a leader in promoting management education as a critical component in successful international development.

GBSN’s members are a selected group of top international business schools committed to using the power of business to create a better world. Our network connects these leaders in business education with each other and with corporations, NGOs, civil society and educators in emerging markets looking to grow.

Through networking opportunities and capacity building programs, the network, including our Corporate Leadership Council and foundation partners, advance management education. Together we strengthen the next generation of leaders for the developing world.

I hope you will join us in our work, as a network grows exponentially stronger with every new partner. Whether you are a leading business school, corporation, NGO, foundation, student or school looking to build your own capacity, I invite you to get involved.
