This is certainly is a proud moment for India, IIM-B students have been given a great opportunity to take their careers on the next level. They have been given an option to elect courses from the most prestigious schools in the world viz. Yale, Berkeley and the London School of Economics. The GNAM (Global Network for Advanced Management) initiative is a unique and phenomenal step taken by Dean Edward Snyder from the Yale School of Management. There are many renowned schools from all the over globe who have made it in this pool of 28 top institutions. IIM-B from India is one of them.
The GNAM methodology has made this possible through a plethora of courses, with the help of technology. These courses are conducted by virtual classroom sessions and small open network courses (SNOC). This network facilitates the exchange of ideas, study resources, global collaboration, and research from various countries and cultures from all over the world. With a combined effort, students can take part in project work and work as a team and these institutions can pick out the best-of-the-best and enrich their academic experience by granting them positions for the Master of Advanced Management Program at the Yale School of Management. GNAM has been adopted by these top institutions as all these schools can collaborate together and work on leadership, development, and define global business in a manner that is synchronized and well deployed.
Students can leverage the framework of SNOC by opting for courses that are not available in their school and can even collaborate with other institutions and students as well. The GNAM program has 20 programs or courses for students from all over the world. This program has been functioning seamlessly as it is only the education institutions that regulate the function of all these courses, students and various other critical parameters. The presence of politics and any other administration that is not required has been kept away from this initiative. IIM-B would garner more connections as well as get top class academicians from other institutions and provide greater opportunities for students to be global players in their careers.
