Hear what some of the students who were at the recent GBS HUB events had to say

Ana Paula Elias  GBS Hub

If you believe in something and if you think you can make a change, go for it because you're not alone. Someone out there is interested in hearing your ideas and listening to what you have to say and maybe what you have to say could change the world.

Abul Kashem Golam Shahriar

I had never been out of the comfort of my own house or my country, and here I am today, holding a post-grad from one of the finest colleges in Europe and doing the unimaginable, participating in events such as GameOn. Where one competes against the brightest of minds based on the very business skills that I learnt, earned and honed from the Griffith College. For me, Griffith didn't teach me the illusions of becoming perfect, but rather prepared me to keep it real by placing my feet grounded with confidence and steeling my heart with courage and professionalism facing the future.

tugay gbs

My Name is Tugay Cengiz and I studied the MSc in Big Data Management and Analytics | Griffith College and the Higher Diploma in Computing | Griffith College. The #GameOn Bootcamp was an epic experience for me. Crafting a comprehensive business plan required delving into years of accumulated knowledge and real-world case studies, while conveying the unvarnished truth necessitated sifting through vast amounts of data. Excited for changing traditional advertising, taking it beyond!

I had the opportunity to spend a year studying at Griffith College as part of my Master 1 in the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Business Program. This culminated in my participation in the Innovation Bootcamp competition in October 2023, where I put my newly acquired knowledge into practice and faced an innovative panel of judges. Looking back, this year was much more than just an academic program, it was a formative adventure that shaped my perspective on the world and enabled me to get out of my comfort zone.

My name is Aleksandra Kantysheva, I'm a second-year student of BA in Animation in Pulse College. I was a finalist in the 2023 Game on innovation bootcamp with GBS Reasearch and Development. My business idea came to my mind after my unsuccessful online shopping experience, when I faced several problems: long delivery, difficulty to make a refund, delivery fee is pretty high, and so on. I presented my solution to this problem at the bootcamp in front of an audience and judges.
