Gurleen Bath ('19)

I was at a turning point in my academic career doing an undergrad in life sciences and not following the traditional path of studying to be a doctor, dentist or scientist. I felt unsure of what I wanted to do next. I knew business school was something that I was always interested in pursuing, but I wasn’t ready for a full-length master’s program at the time. That’s where the Smith GDB really stood out to me; it gave me the opportunity to get some formal training in key business courses while also providing me with the opportunity to network and learn fundamental soft skills.

The GDB taught me a lot more than theory and knowledge from a textbook. This program taught me how to work in high pressure scenarios and how to adapt and collaborate in a dynamic team setting. All of these skills have transferred directly to my current work endeavours.

The Smith GDB will give you back as much as you put into it. Immerse yourself in the experience and put in 110 per cent of your effort! You’ll be surprised by how much you’ll take away from the program at the end of the four months.
