MBA News: Yale SOM Joins International B-Schools for Global Network

A group of 21 business schools from around the world, including the Yale School of Management (SOM), INSEAD, IE Business School in Spain and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, will join forces to form a Global Network, allowing the academics at the participating schools to engage in deeper levels of collaborative work and even create degree programs together. Spearheaded by Yale SOM’s Dean Edward Snyder, the network aims to expand the business schools’ partnerships beyond just student/faculty exchanges and joint degree programs. Last week, all the participating schools met to design an agenda, set up contacts at each school and organize an annual conference. The first initiative that the network will undertake is creating a jointly administered Master of Advanced Management program at Yale SOM, which will accept 12-15 Global Network students for a one-year program.  Each school also hopes its faculty will take part in joint research and case writing, in addition to expanding knowledge about other markets and job prospects for graduates. If this collaboration is successful, other top business schools just might be looking to form similar relationships around the globe or join this group.
