Welcome Welcome Welcome

A very warm welcome to all the new students joining us this term, and of course, to our current students, welcome back! I hope that everyone is well and staying safe. We realize that the past few weeks have been uncertain and maybe a little strange. Fortunately, at GGU we have an incredible and supportive…

Goodbye and Hello!

How to be ‘social’ in a lockdown!

Here at ggusocial, our name says it all. Social. Our aim and mission is to bring students together, share ways of connecting with each other and report on fun activities going on around campus.

Is There A Dr In The House?

GGU is a business school. We all know that. It is not a research university and in that sense, its primary purpose is not to prepare students for a life in academia. Most of you are here for your undergrad and/or Masters and then either to get a job affiliated with your subject or bring…
