International Business Management

This scholarship is a wonderful and deserved achievement for my efforts to surpass my limits on my journey towards BUV. With a modest profile, it was fortunate for me to not only surpass more than 1,000 applicants but also overcome myself to achieve the prestigious Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship. I also want to send a message to students who are also BUV-wannabes: Be confident and try your best because BUV will always “see you as a person”.
