    I study at the Geneva Business School.

    I'm a student. After receiving secondary education, I decided to get Bachelor's degree in Switzerland. I want to associate my future career with business (following in the footsteps of my father). Now I understand why I chose Geneva and the Geneva Business school (and all this with the help of the website SMAPSE). I like it here: firstly, there is an opportunity to obtain a double diploma; secondly, studying is closely connected with practice, i.e. integrated into the business! There were ni problems with living conditions, food, rest.
