Solidarity with Mexico

On 19 September, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake ripped through Mexico City, devastating the area. Tragically, among the casualties are a number of students from Tecnológico de Monterrey, the home university of EGADE Business School. The Global Network is about more than just academic collaboration. We are a community that supports one another. In this moment of crisis for our friends in Mexico, we have the opportunity to stand together and to help on a larger scale than any one of us alone. Global Network members express our affection for our friends at EGADE and at the Tecnológico de Monterrey and stand in solidarity with them. If you wish to help, please make a donation directly to the Mexican Red Cross, through the Cruz Roja Mexicana Amazon wishlist, or through another charity helping those in the area.

The End of Globalization?

In spring 2017, David Bach, Senior Associate Dean at the Yale School of Management, taught an online course on populism, economic nationalism, and the anti-globalization movement. The course culminated in an event in which student finalists in an intensive research "hackathon" received live feedback from Bach, from former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, and from Michael Warren, managing principal of Albright Stonebridge Group.
