Regardless, of whether they are for students, faculty, or administrators, programs carrying the GBSN label have the following characteristics:

Experiential

Because context matters in business and management, many of our activities are designed to provide meaningful developing world experiences.

International

Whether it involves traveling across borders or collaborating digitally, GBSN programs are built on the idea that international diversity fosters innovation and growth. They are culture-full rather than culture-free.

High-Quality

Programs are built by GBSN members, which are leading business schools and partners that have reputations for high quality supported by international accreditations.

Mission-Centered

In the spirt of GBSN’s overarching purpose, programs are relevant to achieving the mission of GBSN, which means that they advance our efforts “to improve access to quality, locally relevant management and entrepreneurship education for the developing world.”
