Global Network Courses

Global Network Courses are for-credit courses offered virtually by a member school open to students from throughout the network. The courses connect students from multuple member schools online for lectures and discussions, and collaborative team projects, developing teamwork skills and cross-cultural perspectives. 

The courses can be thought of as small network online courses, or SNOCs. In contrast to the massive online open courses (MOOCs) offered by many institutions, in which unscreened participants have varying degrees of interest and capabilities, SNOCs enroll a select group of top-tier MBA students engaged in a common effort to build management skills.

By bringing together MBA candidates from member schools as part of their regular coursework, the courses harness the strengths of the Global Network on a daily basis.
