Applications are open for the Swift Institute/GBSN Case Writing Grant Competition 2022. The SWIFT Institute – GBSN Case writing grant will support the development of one teaching case and one research case developed by faculty based in the target countries in Latin America.

  • GBSN invites its faculty, PhD students, and researchers with a background and/or interest in finance, cyber security, and/or risk management to submit a proposal.
