All GSW BBA Programs are

and represent the top 5% of
business programs worldwide.

I think GSW is special because it has a smaller student body that allows you to get really involved and find “your people” through that involvement. It also allows you to form personal relationships with faculty and staff who want to see and help you succeed as a student, person, and in your career path.
