Global Marketing Network (GMN), headquartered in the UK, is the worldwide membership association for marketing and business professionals. Founded in 2005, GMN aims to offer everything required to support professional marketers throughout their career, wherever they are in the world. GMN is supported by a Global Advisory Council and a Global Faculty featuring senior marketing and business practitioners and academicians, and Global Strategic Partners such as Brand Finance plc, all working together to contribute to the design, development and delivery of new programmes and standards, with the aim of unifying and strengthening the marketing profession, worldwide.
The launch of The Global Marketer Programme leading to a Masters in Global Marketing Practice and the introduction of the world's first “born global” accreditation System for marketing professionals are just two of the measures GMN has recently introduced designed to raise standards in marketing practice. With a presence in Europe, Africa, ASEA and North America GMN intends to have a presence in at least 20 countries by the end of 2011.
