About Global Network For Advanced Management (GNAM)

HKUST Business School is the only business school from Hong Kong in the Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM), a network of 30 leading international business schools from diverse regions, countries, cultures, and economies in different phases of development. Launched in 2012, GNAM is dedicated to helping member schools’ students, faculty, staff, alumni and other constituencies deepen their understanding of differences and commonalities in their economies and increase their effectiveness. Leveraging network efficiencies, utilizing new technologies, building strong institutional and personal relationships, and operating with a minimum of bureaucracy, GNAM is having a transformational effect on students, member schools, management education, and beyond.

Within the network, our students have had the chance to participate in online courses in global virtual teams organized by Yale School of Management. Rather than working together in a room, participating students were scattered around the world, communicating with students from seven other well-known business schools over Skype or WhatsApp rather than face-toface.

Students also participated in Global Network Week, during which they attended interesting workshops or courses at another business school in the network.
