The Monash Business School is a university of transformation, holding the vision of becoming recognized as one of the world’s leading academies of scholarship in business, economics and related disciplines. They join with an eagerness to collaborate with the GBSN community in setting the agenda for change in the developing world and working collaboratively with other member schools of GBSN.
“Monash is a truly global university with campuses and operations across various continents. The opportunity to partner with GBSN provides another avenue for internalization that capitalizes on the strength of our education and research in the business management and economics disciplines.”
- Colm Kearney, Dean, Faculty of Business and Economics, Monash Business School
Monash’s mission is aligned with that of GBSN; seeking to have a positive impact on a changing world through their high quality research and education. Their focus covers education, research, consultancy and community engagements across all the major business and economics disciplines. This multidisciplinary, globally focused business school is located in metropolitan Melbourne, one of the world’s great cities of higher education which allows it to have a wide range of research and education networks throughout the world.
During its 56 years of operation, Monash has opened campuses in Malaysia and South Africa. They happen to be among the 1% of business schools in the world to have achieved the elite ‘triple crown’ accreditation by the three major global business school accreditation bodies – AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA – and the only Group of Eight Australian universities to have done so. Ranking no. 1 in the Asia-Pacific region for econometrics, it is also a member of several associations such as:
- Association of Asia Pacific Business Schools (AAPBS)
- Academy of Business in Society (ABIS)
- Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative Accreditation (GRLI)
- Quantitative Techniques for Economics and Management (QTEM)
For over 18 years, The Cave Hill School of Business (CHSB)/University of the West Indies (UWI) has been working towards developing a global community of leaders through its academic and executive development programs, which are geared towards professional development; knowledge development and capacity building. The Institute aims to meet the needs of Caribbean public sector and over two million people who depend on their service.
Originally launched as the Centre for Management Development (CMD) the institution was established in 1991 in response to a need for relevant management skills and leadership knowledge training in the Caribbean region. The institute was subsequently re-launched as the Cave Hill School of Business on June 14, 2006 as a modern organization founded on three pillars: Academic Programs, Executive Development Programs & consultancies and Research.
“Given that we are a part of a developing region, we believe hat being a part of the Global Business Network will deepen and widen our opportunities to learn from renowned universities worldwide. We fully understand the imperatives for strong management capacity through broad intensive education as well as the need to take advantage of best practices and thought leadership of leading business schools around the globe. We are indeed proud that the CHSB/UWI will be the first institution of higher learning in the Caribbean to join the Network.”
- Jeannine Comma, CEO/Director, The Cave Hill School of Business
Cave Hill is focused on delivering high-quality and competitive training that will allow for developmental opportunities to companies in Barbados. This is achieved by ensuring top class education through the managing of training institutions from private and public sectors that leads to growth of the Caribbean region. Their aim is to help its people develop the abilities needed to overcome the challenges faced by Caribbean organizations. The Cave Hill School of Business will surely benefit from and contribute to GBSN’s capacity of empowering the leaders of tomorrow.
