Academic Calendar

GBSB Global Business School uses the quarter system where there are four 10 week study periods (or quarters) during the year. Students are expected to attend three quarters, but may attend all four quarters (including summer quarters) to graduate sooner. Summer quarters are available based on the number of students signed up.
