Guy Visits Tunis in Advance of the GBSN Annual Conference in June
A Fond Farewell From Nora

Guy PfeffermannOn my last day at GBSN, I have a hard time believing it's only been eight years. From my initial six-week contract at the IFC all the way to celebrating our 10th anniversary on the beaches of Tunis, it's been a long and wonderful ride.

Right from the start, GBSN provided exciting opportunities and opened new doors for me. Not long after joining the group, I was sent on my very first field mission, which should have tipped me off as to what life at GBSN was going to be like. During that first trip I visited eight business schools in six countries in less than two weeks. Not only did I learn a great deal about business education in Asia, I learned pretty quickly the importance of carry-on luggage, the value of a passport with extra pages, and the immeasurable joy of a business class upgrade.

Visiting University of Michigan and Michigan State University

Michigan StateLast week GBSN's Doug White and Lisa Leander went on a site visit to University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business and Michigan State University’s Broad College of Business, to learn more about the universities and explore options to collaborate.

Both the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan and The Broad College of Business at Michigan State University have an incredibly array of outward-facing initiatives. These two schools have distinguished themselves as leaders in their strategies to ensure a global reach for their programs, but we see many others turning increasingly to globalizing their offerings.
