Impact on Development

GBSN works to ensure that the developing world has the management talent it needs to generate prosperity. Our network and programs impact economic and social development by building local capacity to train managers, entrepreneurs and community leaders.

Building Local Capacity for Sustainable Growth

Kenyan Entrepreneur

This Kenyan entrepreneur studied management best practices to grow her biofuel business

The developing world managers and entrepreneurs that receive quality management education are the future business, government and social leaders of their communities. They create jobs, deliver services and improve systems that change lives.

Through its highly innovative approach to development GBSN provides long-term solutions that will continue to impact local economic and social opportunities for decades.

GBSN's network and programs build local capacity to develop the management talent necessary to generate prosperity.

The schools that we strengthen through networking, programs and events are critical to addressing the severe shortage in management talent in the developing world.

Our programs have helped these schools:

  • Prepare entrepreneurs to manage their staff, inventory and finances

  • Train managers to lead teams, manage supply lines and innovate for new markets

  • Help small-holder farmers find a global market for their goods

  • Give health care workers the management skills they need to ensure quality care goes as far as possible


Working with the Development Community

Afua Kufour, a Health      Management Fellow, is a      lecturer at Ghana      Institute of Management      and Public Administration     (GIMPA)    

We work with partners in the business and development communities to enhance their development efforts by incorporating management education.

Our network's resources of expertise and diversity give us the unique ability to implement programs that utilize the strengths of several institutions to achieve results that one school could not achieve on its own.

>> Program Spotlight: GBSN and Johnson & Johnson offered a fellowship for African health management faculty to visit business schools at Duke and UCLA to take classes and work with faculty mentors.
