Our Growing Network 'Sharing Ideas and Information'

Posted By Guy Pfeffermann, Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Guy PfeffermannI am thrilled to welcome a number of outstanding institutions to the Global Business School Network: ESADE Business School (Spain), National University of Singapore (Singapore), George Washington University School of Business (USA), and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (China). As our membership expands, the effectiveness of our network in fostering globalization in management education grows.

In AACSB International’s hugely important book, Globalization of Management Education, Dan LeClair and Juliane Iannarelli write: [As a way for schools to become more truly global,] "cooperation of business schools to educate and develop faculty and staff is particularly beneficial. They spread the costs, bring together a more diverse group, and build it into other activities… Networks that span borders also are an especially important mechanism for sharing ideas and information about globalization…” While this is not news to GBSN or our growing membership, the confirmation from such a laudable source is always welcome.

This month I participated in AACSB’s annual International Conference in New York, where I met many friends and attended some stellar workshops. Pierre Tapié, Dean and President of ESSEC (Paris and Singapore), led a fascinating discussion in which he, Lydia Dean Price (Associate Dean, China Europe International Business School) and Shahid Ansari (Provost, Babson College, a GBSN member school) talked about the different ways in which they have incorporated the Principles for Responsible Management Education. I was fascinated to learn how students often take the lead, for example, initiating green projects with corporations; corporations which partner with schools in such a way then co-opt faculty, consolidating the integration of PRME in curricula. This theme will be discussed at GBSN’s forthcoming annual conference in Mexico (June 20-22).

I hope I will see many of you at the conference and look forward to more stimulating discussions on innovative ways to improve management education around the world.
