GSBS FOCUS GROUPS

The GSBS Focus Groups are hands-on workshops, which allow participants to work on specific topics in smaller committees and acquire a deeper understanding of dedicated issues, as well as best practices and useful tools. The Focus Groups will take place on both days of the main GSBS. Participants will be able to register for the workshops starting on October 20 on a first come first serve basis. Click on the focus group title for more information about each workshop.

Registration for Focus Groups is done via our E-180 networking platform.
