Closing Keynote: Globalizing Business Schools: The New Frontier

Friday | January 24 | 2014 | 3:45 pm - 5:00 PM
Las Olas I, II, III

Educational technologies, generational profiles and styles, new business-school models, and ever-evolving corporate needs. The 2014 Leadership Conference has explored the many influences that are encouraging dramatic changes in graduate management education. Key among those disruptive factors impacting our business school landscape is a global economy that is flatter than ever before and which calls for graduate management programs to access, develop, and connect talent worldwide. In April 2012, under the leadership of Dean Ted Snyder, Yale School of Management brought together deans from top business schools to launch the Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM) for this very purpose – to enable faculty at business schools around the world, enterprises in all sectors, and students at various stages of professional development to connect and address the leadership challenges facing business and society in today’s global economy. Dean Snyder will share with us the impetus for the Global Network's creation, the curricular innovations and initiatives that are already benefiting hundreds of students, the path ahead for the 25 member schools comprising the Global Network, and his thoughts on how business schools must adapt to new global realities.
