can I place menu in external file

I am looking to use menu maker for a large site and would prefer all the links to be in an external file so that adjustments to the menu structure will be picked up by every page. At present it seems that all the menu data is written directly into the hosting page which I assume means that if we then use that page as our template the menu on every page will have the same menu structure and we cannot create a site wide change, is this correct, if so how can we best overcome this other than placing the menu on a seperate header page and using a ssi to add the header page to every page on the site.

Thanks in advance
