Miami Business School (MBS) at the University of Miami announced that it has joined the Global Business School Network (GBSN), a not-for-profit organization that collaborates with business schools, industry, foundations and aid agencies to improve access to quality, locally relevant management education for the developing world.

“I am very pleased to announce that Miami Business School joins the Global Business School Network to further strengthen our relationships with business schools, corporations and not-for-profit organizations in emerging economies, particularly in Latin America and the Caribbean,” said Henrik Cronqvist, Vice Dean for Faculty and Research at Miami Business School.

Founded in 2003, GBSN has become a leader in promoting management education as a critical component in successful international development.

“In over 40 years as a development economist at the World Bank, I saw vast amounts of money, resources and human potential go to waste. It wasn’t just money these emerging markets needed, but human capacity to effectively manage resources and productively lead teams,” said Guy Pfeffermann, founder of GBSN.

GBSN’s members are a select group of top international business schools committed to using the power of business to create a better world. Our network connects these leaders in business education with each other and with corporations, NGOs, civil society and educators in emerging markets looking to grow.

With a growing network of more than 90 leading business schools across six continents, GBSN fosters cross-border networking, knowledge sharing and collaboration both within its membership network and with the broader business education and development communities.
