GSM was founded by Stephen Clegg in London after successfully completing BOSSA Chinese Study Abroad Agency Fair London 2013 which was attended by 120 education institutions and 40 mainland Chinese agencies over a one week period.

Since then GSM has worked in partnership with organizations including Beijing Overseas Study Service Association (BOSSA), American International Recruitment Council (AIRC) and China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE). GSM now manages events itself often working in partnership with state study consortia.

GSM is building membership of its free agency portal which now has over 200 US educator members and over 120 approved agency members and will continue to develop the functionality and the membership of accredited US educators and approved agencies.

The focus in 2019 will be running further US roadshows, building agency partnerships, setting up regional offices and offering a new service to manage local representatives on behalf of educator partners from the expanding GSM office network.
