“I have learned a lot in my time at GBS. I am currently pursuing a career in investment banking. This is a result of my interest in investment risk management and investment return. However my ambition is to one day start my own business venture. With my acquired understanding of global business and commercial ventures through conducting comprehensive case studies involving foreign market analysis and company valuation studies, I could pursue such a dream. More importantly these skills proved integral to the success of team projects in GBS. These projects have taught me not only how to work well with others but how to be a leader. A trait much in demand in today’s entrepreneurial environment.”
