Why AUBG is a smart choice to make
1. Smart Learning
Choosing a university should sparkle a thought, a glance, or maybe even an entire perspective of the idea what kind of person you will become after you graduate. How you will develop, not just what certificates you will hold. How will you become better? What will trigger your motivation to work harder, to discover your strengths, qualities, skills that will shape you into the person you want to become?
University years are not just about studying, they are about learning. This is exactly why choosing a place where learning is taken to the next level and transformed into a smart process is crucial. At AUBG you will not only receive high-quality American education delivered entirely in English. You will not just get both a U.S. and a European diploma. At this place - accredited by the same body that accredits Harvard, MIT and Yale in the U.S, you will have the chance to forget your fear of failing. How? By trying a lot of new things, by constantly being challenged by professors, peers, and yourself to do more, to discover more, to find yourself.
Being set in an environment that will not put limitations in front of you, but encourage you to experiment, you will be able to choose your own curriculum, professors, majors and minors. The liberal arts system puts you in an academic setting of excellence and introduces you to the practical knowledge of its faculty. Learning from inspiring people is a significant process of building upon the theoretical basis that really makes all the difference.
