Global Business School Network becomes a C:F Network Partner

by C:F Team on 16th February, 2011 at 9:20 PM CEST

We are delighted to bring another key Network Partner among us! This time we would like to put Global Business School Network (GBSN) in the spotlight! Since 2003, GBSN has been a leader in promoting management education as a critical component in successful international development strategies.

GBSN is fostering a network of emerging business leaders who are committed to using the power of business to create a better world as the next generation of skilled managers will have a positive impact on society throughout their professional careers and beyond.

Some of GBSN’s initial projects included: strategic planning for a school in Ghana seeking to attain international accreditation, development of an entrepreneurial management course in Nigeria, production of local case studies in Kenya, and creation of a pan-African faculty development program focused on participatory pedagogy for business schools.

Through its activities, GBSN has strengthened faculty at more than 16 business schools in Africa, developed more than 170 local case studies, surveyed 800 African health professionals on the need for management and leadership skills in healthcare, and, working with experts from 12 countries, helped guide the establishment of a new business school in Pakistan. 

The Network has grown from its original 18 member schools to over 40 schools today, and is rapidly expanding.  Through its programs and network GBSN plays a strong role in raising awareness of the importance of management education in national development – a much-neglected but crucial facet of development policy.
 
GBSN has also launched MBA Challenge Video Contest, a competition addressed to current MBA students and MBA graduates, highlighting the impact of business schools in developing countries.
   
 
Submissions for GBSN’s MBA Challenge can be made online between February 1 and April 1, 2011, the winner receiving an all expenses paid trip to Mexico City, Mexico for the 6th Annual Conference of the Global Business School Network, Generating Leadership: Developing Human Capacity in Emerging Markets, co-hosted by IPADE Business School. Guy Pfeffermann, GBSN’s founder and CEO mentioned that “By training a new generation of problem solvers, business schools have an enormous potential for improving the quality of life in developing countries.”
