Friday, 26 January 2018  Media Alerts

UNSW Business School has joined the Global Network for Advanced Management, a network of top business schools committed to educating global leaders, as the only Australian representative within the Network.

Added along with the SDA Bocconi School of Management in Italy and the Strathmore Business School in Kenya, the Global Network now encompasses 32 schools on six continents. Member schools include the Yale School of Management (USA), INSEAD (France, Singapore), and the Fudan University School of Management.

By leveraging network efficiencies, using new technologies, building strong institutional and personal relationships, and operating with a minimum of bureaucracy, the Global Network is having a transformational effect on students, member schools, management education, and beyond.

Each member school contributes unique academic strengths and perspectives on the highly interconnected global economy to the benefit of all participants. The three new schools represent not just geographic expansion, but also a strategic advancement for the network as a whole by bringing vital connections with the high-tech manufacturing and fashion center of Northern Italy, the fast-moving and fast-growing markets of East Africa, and the increasingly influential Asia Pacific region.

The addition of the research-oriented and tech-rich UNSW Business School provides students across the Global Network a welcome gateway to Australia's record-breaking economic growth as well as to the Asia Pacific region at large. Said UNSW Business School Dean Professor Chris Styles: "We are proud and honoured to be the only Australian business school to join this global network. Our students, our faculty and our business partners operate on a global stage—and the network exemplifies this reach. We are delighted to work with our new network partners to bring fresh opportunities for our students and our academic staff, and to form a knowledge network that will improve management education across the world."

Tam Kar Yan, Dean of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Business School, expressed admiration for the school. He said, "UNSW Business School is in a leading Australian university and has a strong regional and global engagement. With the addition of UNSW Business School—the first member school from Australia—the expanded network manifests the firm commitment of the Global Network to stretching across continents in promoting global knowledge and creating an environment where business students and faculty can be inspired to advance and excel."

Yale SOM Dean and Global Network Chair Edward Snyder said of the new member schools: "I warmly welcome our three new Global Network member schools. Support for adding these three standout schools was unanimous. All current members represented at our 12th Deans and Directors Meeting in Hong Kong felt that the three new member schools will enhance the opportunities for students, faculty, staff and alumni across the network, and we look forward to including Strathmore, SDA Bocconi School of Management, and UNSW Business School stakeholders in our programs and initiatives."
