Expert visits at Geneva Campus Classes


GBS aims to provide several channels to help the students get as much knowledge and experiences from their industries. Therefore, industry experts are regularly invited to our classes to share their insights and perspectives of their experiences. These expert visits allow the students to have a better understanding of different professions, markets and gives them the space to ask, debate and interact with them.
