Network will help improve access to education and the impact of research
Manchester Metropolitan University Business School has joined the Global Business School Network (GBSN), a network of the world’s leading business schools working on improving access to management education for the developing world.
GBSN is made up of a network of only 140 top business schools across the world, which implements impactful projects and programmes and develops thought leadership.
It brings the world’s leading business schools together with businesses, NGOs, and governments to improve access to quality, locally relevant management and entrepreneurship education.
Joining the network will help Manchester Met’s Business School deliver its strategy, providing a transformative education experience for students while using in-depth knowledge and ground-breaking research to develop practical solutions to real-world problems.
The network also ensures that the Business School continues to be recognised for its high standards following the recent retainment of its triple accreditation status, which sets the international benchmark of excellence.
Professor Hannah Holmes, Dean of the Business School and Deputy Faculty Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Business and Law at Manchester Met, said: “We are delighted to have been invited to join the Global Business School Network, which will help us to continue to develop our curriculum and innovation in our approach to business and management education.
“This will also enable us to widen our network to further build on our research strengths through regional, national, and international collaborations and partnerships.
“Being able to draw on the experience of business schools across the world will enable us to deliver professionally relevant courses in subject areas directly linked to the needs of industry.”
Dan LeClair, GBSN CEO, said: “Manchester Met knows from experience that business education is a powerful force for economic and social transformation locally.
“GBSN will benefit from that experience, as well as the school’s highly engaged faculty and students, in its work internationally.”
