“I believe that business schools need to take a leadership role in educating future global leaders and to help solve some of the most critical problems in education, poverty, food availability, climate change, etc.

I believe that membership in Global Business School Network provides us the opportunity to improve our school’s activities globally as well as create a vehicle for us to help others.”
