Be it seamlessly transitioning from an offline to an online mode of academic delivery to a hybrid learning model, from on-campus recruitment drives to virtual internships and getting offered desirable job opportunities, from a digital admission process to issuing diplomas on a Secured Certificate Verification Platform, GBS has always focused on innovation with the appropriate use of technology, pertinent to the needs of time.
