"I chose GBSB Global mainly because of its diversity. There are students from everywhere around the globe, making it a fascinating learning environment to grow both personally and professionally. Because the class size is relatively small I feel we have gotten a very personalized education catered to our personal interests and aspirations. Students are encouraged to interact with professors and speak with them directly. This is a factor I grew very fond of, and it played a major part as to why I decided to study at GBSB Global. The school takes a very proactive approach teaching business from a practical standpoint that is easy to understand and relate to."
