Global Network for Advanced Management
The Global Network for Advanced Management is a collaborative network of 32 leading business schools from diverse regions, countries, cultures, and economies in different phases of development working to understand the strategic implications of a flat and connected world. A common motivation of member schools to connect is to position their students, faculty, staff, alumni and other constituencies so that they can deepen their understanding of differences and commonalities in their economies and increase their effectiveness. Member schools recognize that leaders in all sectors will be asked to contribute to the solutions of major problems that are typically complex and global.
Representing a shift beyond traditional partnership models of business school collaboration, the Global Network, of which EGADE Business School is founding partner, enables the development of innovative initiatives that leverage the schools’ comparative advantages. Leveraging network efficiencies, utilizing new technologies, building strong institutional and personal relationships, and operating with a minimum of bureaucracy, the Global Network is having a transformational effect on students, member schools, management education, and beyond.
To drive innovation and create value by connecting leading global business schools, their resources, and their stakeholders.

Global Network Weeks
The Global Network for Advanced Management promotes exchange between professors, students, and alumni, as well as in research on issues of global business. The Global Network Week is a biannual initiative where students share and live an intensive one-week immersion experience with other international students and faculty from member business schools of the global network, giving them the opportunity to understand different business angles from other countries and live the experience during their studies from a truly global perspective.

Global Network Courses
Global Network Courses are for-credit courses offered virtually by a member school and open to students from throughout the network. The courses link 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.
The courses can be thought of as small network online courses, or SNOCs. In contrast to the massive online open courses (MOOCs) offered by many institutions, in which unscreened participants have varying degrees of interest and capabilities, SNOCs enroll a select group of top-tier MBA students engaged in a common effort to build management skills.

Global Network Perspectives
Global Network Perspectives is the ideas-based online magazine of the Global Network for Advanced Management, a consortium of 32 top business schools from around the world. Global Network Perspectives features the expertise, research, and opinions of faculty and other contributors from throughout the network, with an emphasis on the complexities of doing business in an increasingly interconnected world.
In order to develop teaching materials that reflect the challenges that students will face in the globalized world, member schools of the Global Network for Advanced Management collaborate to create online “raw” case studies investigating global business problems.
Unlike traditional cases, “raw” cases use a variety of online sources including extensive background data, news articles, and video interviews to provide a fuller picture of a complex business situation. By collaborating, member schools are able to create cases with cross-national perspectives, benefiting from the participation of researchers at multiple schools. Aditionally, member schools also share their own cases and teaching notes.
