GBSB Global students presented their final thesis projects

On Thursday 24th and Friday 25th of January, some of our GBSB Global students presented their final thesis projects. We were happy to hear from students from our Finance, Digital Marketing, Entrepreneurship, International Business, Communications, Fashion and Tourism programs.

One of the presentations that really stood out to us was done by Dan Jin, Jorge Tiago Melo, Katerina Bankouskaya from our Tourism program. They analyzed and presented a new trend in tourism, which is surprise travel. From the data they gathered they came to the conclusion that there are two main problems in the current traveling industry. The first being that trip planning is becoming tedious for travelers, and the second being that the travel industry is becoming quite predictable. That is why surprise travel has proven recently to be such a success, customers do not have to worry about planning, as surprise travel companies take care of that for them. It also injects a level of excitement back into the industry, being as the customer doesn’t know where they are going!

Furthermore, they were able to see that over 70% of customers where millennial couples, mainly because they were more open-minded to the surprise element, the price was attractive, and they were more susceptible to social media marketing. Thanks to data like this, it can help students predict future trends for the tourism industry, which ultimately can give them the tools to succeed in their own professional endeavors.

We also saw other interesting topics from students like Jean-Baptiste Meyohas from our BBA program, whose thesis explored, “How can the public French television tackle Netflix disruption? Challenges and opportunities”. It’s these kinds of insights that allow for our students to be able to analyze current trends and issues within our society, so they can in turn, see these challenges as opportunities, and take these opportunities to market.
