GBSN members:

GBSN membership provides a platform for schools, wherever they operate, to contribute to the advancement of management education for the developing world. Members make GBSN’s advocacy and outreach possible.

Engage Peer-to-Peer

Membership in GBSN is a way for leading business schools to build relationships with like-minded colleagues around the globe, train and mentor international peers, and find new opportunities to grow and develop individual professionals and their institution as a whole.

Membership is selective and is on an institutional basis only. Applications are reviewed on a quarterly basis by an Academic Advisory Board of GBSN member school representatives who look for business schools that demonstrate excellence, innovation, internationalization and a willingness to engage in GBSN’s mission and activities.

Opportunities for Members

GBSN convenes and connects our members around various areas of mutual interest, virtually and at events held around the world. We promote the expertise and interests of our members by giving them a platform to mentor and advise international peers, communicate their school’s news and open opportunities to global audiences, and share how they are innovating in management education to the benefit of their colleagues around the world.

Through our summits on topics in teaching business, conferences and professional development programs, GBSN offers management education professionals, and their institutions, practical opportunities to learn and develop.


Promotion of Best Practice



“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.”
