An initiative of the Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM), Global Network Week (GNW) allows students and faculty to pursue intensive study at other GNAM member schools in different parts of the world, in a focused course that leverages on the perspectives, programs, and faculty expertise of a particular school. Alongside their counterparts from the GNAM network, students attend classes, tour local businesses, and meet with experts focused on current and emerging business problems.
