SOM hosts third Global Network Week

Starting today, Yale School of Management is hosting 146 students from 12 schools across the Global Network for Advanced Management – an international network of schools founded by Dean Edward Snyder in 2012. Business schools participating this week include the University of Cape Town, the Technion Israel Institute of Technology and the Catholic University of Chile.

The Global Network Week is a weeklong program of classes at each one of the participating business schools. This week, 86 Yale SOM students are scattered throughout the world, having enrolled in the programs at these 12 schools. The program at Yale will be similar to the one presented at the last GN week in October, and classes will be taught entirely by SOM professors.

The title of the event is “From Madison Avenue to Wall Street – Everything you need to know about Behavioral Economics,” and the curriculum includes classes like “Leadership Mind Games: Overconfidence & Trusting Your Gut”, taught by Daylian Cain, and “Behavioral Finance at the Origin,” taught by Will Goetzmann. At the end of the week, students will complete and present group projects on the subject of behavioral economics.

The next Global Network Week is slated for March 17-21.
