years of AUBG community



We take diversity seriously at AUBG: our unique position as a global university in one of Europe’s most ancient civilizations gives us a point of view you won’t find elsewhere.

Back in 1991, it all started with one international student from Norway – Kasra Mottahedeh. Nowadays, AUBG is home to some of the brightest students from over 40 countries.

As technology continues to make the world of work more connected, there’s never been a better time to make broadening your horizons a top priority. It’s well known that diverse teams perform better, and at AUBG, our Diversity Program will give you the edge.

Our Diversity Program kicks off right in Orientation week with a half-day workshop. After that, our dedicated Diversity Team (made up of a representative cross-section of students, staff, and administrators, all of whom get special training) leads many fun and varied events throughout the year to inspire and encourage you to get involved. Some examples are Diversity Week and the Dance and Taste Fest.
