What I enjoy most about AAU is its diverse and engaging environment. The smaller class sizes allowed me to make meaningful connections with faculty members and students, and facilitated networking, which is extremely important in the business world and has enabled me to seek out the right opportunities.

Business Administration

We do almost all of our projects in small international teams, and we work together as we would in a business company and synergize our different ideas. There's the flexibility to meet with teachers outside of class and ask them questions, not only specific things we learned about in the class but about professional development, networking, industry insight, or anything at all!
