Alumni


Being a relatively new and small school, we take pride in our personal communication and relations with our current and former students. We sincerely hope that our Alumni enjoyed their time at GSD as much as we cherished their presence here.

We are continually investing in strengthening our alumni network to retain contact with those who have graduated and build a mutually beneficial relationship, not only for the School itself but mainly for our current students, to encourage cooperation and to the exchange of contacts and ideas
