MBA+ Challenge Video Contest - Can Business Education Change the World?  We think so.
Greetings From Guy

Guy PfeffermannThe scarcity of Ph.D. faculty persists in the developing world, and limits the growth of local talent pools. Not only multinational, but also fast-growing local companies, are compelled to retain and to continue “importing” very expensive expatriate managers. Unless the local business schools turn out increasing numbers of high quality graduates, national competitiveness will suffer.  In turn, the ability of local business schools to supply local demands depends a good deal on the quality and number of highly qualified faculty.

I am thrilled to announce that GBSN is taking the lead in meeting this global challenge.  We are working on a collaborative online PhD program that would be open to a large number of students in the developing world. By tapping the collective faculty resources of member schools we will be able to offer a comprehensive program which no one business school would have the resources to provide on its own.
