EVANDO NASCIMIENTO, Angola
"My GBSB Global experience not only allowed me to meet and work with inspiring people from different countries and backgrounds, it also improved my understanding of complex managerial methods. Studying at GBSB Global - Business School added an international perspective to my business studies and the time I spent in Barcelona allowed me to experience college life in a fantastic city. After GBSB Global I went back home to Angola where I am currently working at APIEX-Angola (Agency for Investment, Promotion and Export). I never thought that an MSc in Operations & Supply Chain Management program would add so many colors and experiences to my life. I am pleasantly amazed to see how much I have changed and grown."
