"Overall, the MA in Business Innovation was an inspiring program full of talented students and a variety of faculty members not only teaching but actually working as professionals within the industry."
GBSB Global Alumna, Class of 2015
NIKITA SAFONOV, Russia
"I like not so obvious concepts and when teachers propose books and information you can’t get on your own. When the professors provided this material, it was great. I had one professor who gave us case studies from Harvard University, and I really enjoyed them. The professor was very interesting and was working with a start-up. The ideas he presented in class were fascinating."
