Having been promoted by Globsyn with deep roots in IT hardware, training and fulfilment, GBS uses technology-enabled platforms and systems in all its operations and processes. With Globsyn now looking at Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Analytics and Internet of Things as an area of focus, the students of our B-School can only expect greater dependence on these emerging technologies to further improve the academic delivery process.”
