Global Network for Advanced Management

Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM)

HKUST is proud to be the only member school in Hong Kong to participate in the Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM), which includes other world-renowned universities such as Yale, Oxford, Berkeley, HEC, IMD, and IE across 28 countries.

GNAM aims to drive innovation and create value by connecting leading global business schools. Global Network Week is one of the programs that provides students the opportunity to pursue intensive studies at another network school, in a focused course that leverages the perspectives, programs, and faculty expertise of that school. Below are some examples of recent modules:

  • Behavioral Science of Management at Yale School of Management
  • Sustainable Development Goals, Cities, and Inclusive Prosperity at UBC Sauder School of Business
  • From Made in China to Invented in China at Business School, Renmin University of China
  • Sustainable and Inclusive Development from Tokyo at Hitotsubashi University Business School
  • Managing Across Cultures: Cultural Competence for Global Business Managers at Indian Institute of Management Bangalore

Our GNAM membership also gives our MBA students the opportunity to pursue credit-bearing Small Network Online Courses (SNOC), which are virtual networked education programs offered by the member schools. These courses connect students from the member schools via online lectures, discussions, and collaborative team projects. You can also attend online seminars and participate in alumni events that introduce you to an extensive network of connections across the globe. Here are some examples of the course offerings:

  • International Entrepreneurship by Yale School of Management
  • Power and Politics by Haas School of Business, University of California Berkeley
  • A Primer on Social and Financial Innovation by IMD Switzerland

I really appreciate how the school implemented unique learning opportunities into the program to broaden our global and leadership exposure. The Geoplitics and Global Business Courses I took at Yale in the Global Network Week only lasted five days. Compared with the exchange program, this is much more manageable for part-time students, as you only need to take a week's leave from work to join. All elements of the program are designed with part-time students' needs in mind, so we can complete the program while continuing our full-time jobs.
