We, the GSE Young Professionals Group, would like to invite you to our first event at Hogeschool Gent on May 23, 2013.


Young Professionals is a new group inside GSE (Guide Share Europe) founded for young ICT professionals and students. GSE is a non-profit association of companies, organizations and individuals who are involved in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) solutions based on IBM architectures.


Our goal is to view ICT by sector and creating a bridge between the students and young professionals. Sharing experiences, exchanging information about an organization, the different roles within an ICT department, … .
