Doing the GGSB MBA was an amazing experience for my personal and professional development. It gave me skills in areas that made of me an interdisciplinary professional capable of solving problems and facing challenges on my day to day work in areas like production, procurement, finance, innovation, marketing and general management. I'm very satisfied with my school choice and grateful with the professors that always showed great experience and transmitted their valuable knowledge to me and to my classmates. Laura Castro
