“GBS has given me the right knowledge and exposure I needed to compete and succeed in this international market. My career goal is to become a CPA and work as an auditor in an international organisation. I am proud to be affliated with the Geneva Business School”.
“My initial motivation was to broaden my horizon in the view of professional and personal challenge. Together with a challenging job at the center of a major change process, the Geneva Buisness School programme was the best incentive to increase efficiency further within a very tight time schedule. The most impressive result is to realise that it was possible to reach my objectives and to manage all these parallel activities, work in teams, learn a lot and even have fun at the same time. This was just a perfect complement to my academic background and professional experience.”
