GSB is an international school. We welcome international students from more than 47 countries on 4 continents, including exchange, double degree and full-time students. We attend the same lectures and seminars, work on the same projects, sit shoulder to shoulder in the library, participate together in competitions and championships, but what do we know about each other?

THE WORLD CULTURE FEST is your chance to talk about your home country and culture, family customs and traditions, share with us delicious recipes of your national cuisine.
