"Studying at GBSB Global made me realize the overwhelming amount of business undergoing digitization. After my program, I knew I had to put more time towards digital marketing and ecommerce."
GBSB Global Alumna, Class of 2015
RUBIN VAN DER VEEN, Netherlands
"The class sizes were small, so I got a lot of personal attention. I also liked that the professors focused on innovation and future developments, rather than just teaching us old and outdated business methods. I also enjoyed Barcelona very much. It is an international city and very open and tolerant of people from all over the world."
