Careers Fair


The GSB Career Fair is an annual attraction and much-anticipated affair. Headed by our Careers and Alumni Department, the events seek to bring together like-minded individuals and showcase our talent.

The Career Fair is an opportunity to connect with the broader student body at a single event. This fair allows recruiters to engage on a one-to-one basis at the GSB, at a time when most students are available. By combining memorable material about each organisation with the presence of engaging team members (from recruitment and beyond), the Career Fair is an excellent way to make a good impression. 

It is hosted over two separate half day events  two Career fairs : "Corporate and Consulting" and "Innovation and New Ventures”. They take place annually and are normally structured  a week apart in May. 

The Innovation and New Ventures Career Fair benefits students:

  • who are entrepreneurial and seeking non-traditional opportunities and careers that will benefit and impact society.
