What We Do

We cultivate a network of leading business schools that share our goal of more and better schools to train managers and entrepreneurs for the developing world.

We draw on the expertise and experience of that network to implement capacity building programs that advance management education, creating a long-term impact on development.

 Cultivating a Network

At the GBSN 2010 Conference

GBSN 2010 Annual Conference   in Washington, DC  

GBSN membership provides top business schools in advanced and developing nations opportunities to convene, share ideas and resources, and build partnerships with each other, as well as with emerging schools in developing countries.

Each business school that is part of our global network is a leader in the effort to bring global excellence in management education to the developing world.

Drawing from our network of top business schools, GBSN designs and implements capacity-building programs for schools in the developing world.


GBSN assembles teams for projects that no one top business school would be able to spare resources for alone. Our members' commitment to our mission and our networked model allows us to keep overhead and program costs to a minimum.

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.

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.

Since 2003 GBSN programs have:

  • Strengthened faculty and curricula at more than 16 business schools in Africa

  • Developed more than 170 local case studies

  • Surveyed 800 African health professionals on the need for management and leadership skills in healthcare

  • Helped guide the establishment of a new business school in Pakistan
