Since 2003 GBSN has engaged our members to build management education capacity for the developing world. Through partnerships with a variety of funders GBSN programs have made a impact on the both individual institutions and the sector of management education around the world.

As a US-based convener and coordinator of these programs GBSN has access to international experts on every continent looking for opportunities to train, advise and mentor.  We are not a funder, but work with funding partners to develop effective programs and engage appropriate experts from our network of top member schools in the following ways:

GBSN’s network structure and low administrative costs, combined with our ability to source world-class expertise willing to contribute their time, often at below market-rate compensation, allows GBSN to implement programs that make the most of available resources while delivering exceptional quality.
