At GISMA Business School, we want our students to walk away knowing more than just the content of their course. It is important for students to understand the particulars of the industries they will work in and are equipped with the skills to handle the challenges they may face. To ensure students leave having had the best experience, we encourage our students to organise and attend trips that will help them build their understanding of the sectors they will potentially work in. Students decide the aims of these trips and arrange activities that will help prepare them for their future careers.

Here is just a glimpse of what our students did this year:

GISMA students visit Stockholm

In May 2019, GISMA students from the MSc Innovation, Strategy and Entrepreneurship programme took part on a study trip to Stockholm, Sweden. The main task for them was to plan and organise the trip completely by themselves while setting impactful focus points for the week. They all went for innovation and set up inspiring company visits during their trip. They visited companies like Volvo, ASSA ABLOY, OBH Nordica Group, Northvolt, Bonnier Group and Spotify.
