Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM)

Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM)

As part of its ongoing mission to educate aspiring leaders worldwide who serve all sectors of society, Yale University engages with a rich network of international business schools through the Global Network for Advanced Management

Launched in 2012 by a consortium of 21 schools including the Yale School of Management, the Global Network now includes 32 leading business schools from diverse regions, countries, cultures, and economies in different phases of development. Representing a shift beyond traditional partnership models of business school collaboration, the Global Network enables the development of innovative initiatives that leverage the schools’ comparative advantages. The Global Network is a flexible and efficient platform for schools to work together and leverage resources that far exceed what any school could do on its own.

Member schools have worked cooperatively on a variety of projects that cumulatively have reached thousands of students. Through Global Network Weeks, students pursue intensive study at another Global Network school and gain exposure to new business environments. Global Network Courses are online for-credit courses that enable students around the world to learn from faculty experts and collaborate on team projects. The Global Network also leverages its access to faculty, students, and alumni in hundreds of countries to take the pulse of the business community on issues of worldwide significance through periodic surveys.  

In addition to the Yale School of Management, Global Network members include: 


Asia Pacific

Europe, Middle East, Africa

Yale’s leadership of the network has proved rich and fruitful in enabling students to think globally, act across borders, and understand how global trends will affect their enterprises. Faculty, students, and staff at Yale have developed connections with peers around the globe and leveraged these relationships to develop both formal and informal activities—from a cross-border research project to student competitions. 

Edward Synder, the William S. Beinecke Professor of Economics and Management at the Yale School of Management (the Indra K. Nooyi Dean of the Yale School Management from 2012 through 2019), serves as the chair of the Global Network. 

Yale’s primary point of contact for the Global Network is Elizabeth Wilkinson, For more information, visit
