Greetings From Guy
QUIZ: What do these pictures have to do with management education and development?
The one with the red balloon shows the Brasserie du Printemps, which sits atop the famed Paris department store. The Council on Business & Society's inaugural international forum dined there November 16.
The Council is a global alliance of schools of management that involves faculty, students, business leaders and policy makers. The founding members are ESSEC Business School (a GBSN member); Keio Business School; School of Management, Fudan University; Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth (a GBSN member); and University of Mannheim, Business School. ESSEC's Pierre Tapié hosted the first International Forum, and the four other Deans participated actively.
The next Forum will be in Tokyo in 2014.
The second picture is a view from Grenoble Ecole de Management (GEM), where I had the pleasure of meeting Dean Loïck Roche and many of his team.
Established initially to impart management skills to engineers of companies based in Dauphiné, GEM runs some 40 programs ranging from Masters in Fashion, Design and Luxury Management to a Doctorate in Business Administration program, which emphasizes applied research and is therefore of particular interest to developing world candidates.

Africa needs One Million Super-Managers
by Carol Realini, GBSN Board Member
Working in fast growing emerging economies is challenging. Things we take for granted – like roads, reliable deliver services, manageable bureaucracy in government – are missing from many emerging economies. It creates a vicious cycle for managers feeling they are not in control so why even try. That is added to the cultural attitudes that encourage acceptance of the status quo and slow consensus building.
