Global Network for Advanced Management Fifth Anniversary Symposium

April 19 – 21, 2017

Business and Management Education in the Age of Contested Globalization

For decades, most business schools and indeed most businesses have operated under the assumption that flows of goods, money, information, and people across borders will continue to grow as the world becomes more global. Rising populism and nationalism around the globe call for a reality check. What is the future of globalization and what are the implications for globally operating enterprises? How can business schools prepare students for the challenges ahead?

The Global Network for Advanced Management was built for this challenge. The Global Network has already launched a series of innovations—from virtual courses to multi-school case studies—that leverage and connect top minds in markets around the world. To mark the Global Network’s Fifth Anniversary, faculty, students, alumni, deans, and directors of the 29 member schools who have made networked learning, inquiry, and teamwork a reality will convene:

  • to celebrate in demonstrations of these innovations, and
  • to confront pressing issues on the future of globalization and their implications for management education.

This is an invitation-only event for members of the Global Network for Advanced Management community. Events will be available via live video stream to the public.

The program begins on Wednesday, April 19, 2017, and concludes on Friday, April 21, 2017
