PROFESSIONALLY ACTIVE FACULTY
Our philosophy, clearly demonstrated across our campus network, is to employ highly-educated and professionally-active faculty members to teach our students. Our current faculty have excellent academic credentials and, for this reason, many leave their offices and busineses to teach students at GBS, before returning later in the day to their regular working lives.
GBS combines the US system for accreditation and quality control, the European (Bologna) system for credits (ECTS) and the Swiss grading system. The numerous international accreditations that GBS holds, allows the transfer of credits and ensures that GBS is in line with the quality-control benchmarks of other high-quality business schools around the world.
Our head office is based in Geneva, but we have other GBS campuses and partner campuses around the world. There is also an exchange program, giving students the possibility to transfer between our main campuses for a semester, allowing for a truly international experience. There are over 60 nationalities currently represented.
With the assistance of the GBS student council, students quickly recognize that participating in activities outside of the classroom is just as important as those within the classroom. We support our students in maintaining healthy lifestyles, creating an active professional network, and engaging in the wider community.
