Global Industry Night (GIN)
Time & Location
About the Event
Global Industry Night has been IBSA's prominent winter event since its inception. Our goal for this event is to encourage students to go abroad by creating a comfortable atmosphere where they can ask questions about working and studying abroad. Students can expect to gain a further understanding of what their time abroad may look like, and how they can adapt to different cultures they experience.
In the past, the event has mainly been a panel setting with industry professionals that answer questions on travel and working abroad. We have had representatives from RBC, Accenture, EY and many other prominent international firms in the past present to a crowd of over 50 students. This year we aim to change the event to make it more engaging for both the professionals and the students, as well as differentiate it from International Business Night. The new format for Global Industry Night will feature industry professionals engaging in 'speed networking' with multiple groups of students, allowing attendees to develop more meaningful connections in a more relaxed setting. We aim to have a diverse set of professionals from all industries to give students a wide breadth of experience to learn from and to connect with professionals whose career path and interests they align with.
