GBSN December eNewsletter: Happy Holidays!
Guy PfeffermannStephen Sacca
Chief Executive Officer

At the foundation of GBSN’s work is its members and partners who network and share knowledge through our events, contribute expertise and energy to programs that build management education capacity, and share creativity and passion for international collaboration that make GBSN a thought leader and catalyst for change. GBSN has exciting plans for the new year. 2018 will see the launch of a wider variety of topical summits spread across different regions and several new member-led programs to build capacity in business school leadership. GBSN is here to help colleagues connect, learn, share and contribute. In the spirit of development and international collaboration, I look forward to a year filled with unique opportunities of engagement and collaboration with members and partners. I encourage others to join the network and work towards GBSN’s mission: to build management education capacity for the developing world. On behalf of the entire GBSN team, I wish everyone a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year!
