Excited students from a diverse range of professional backgrounds and representing a total of 10 different nations gathered for a welcome address from Goethe University’s Vice President Prof. Dr. Rolf van Dick, MBA Academic Director Prof. Dr. Lars Schweizer, and GBS Managing Director Dr. Christian Jansen. The part-time students enjoyed the opportunity to network with GBS Alumni and partners such as House of IT and House of Pharma & Healthcare, while getting an early taste for the interactive lesson style of GBS in a Team Building exercise. The evening closed with a reception event as students geared up for their first classes, which began early on Friday, October 5. Students dove directly into their studies with a weekend packed full of lectures, guest talks, and group case studies, bringing the valuable mix of theory and practice offered by these specialized part-time programs to the spotlight.
GBS wishes all of its new students best of luck for the start of their studies!
