2010 International Business Management Cohort

At BUV, I was provided with maximum opportunities to explore my strengths and passions. The staff, teachers, and professors were always ready and proactive in supporting me in every aspect, including mental health. Moreover, BUV introduced me to wonderful friends, brothers, and sisters who were loving and always ready to help me anytime, anywhere. I consider myself fortunate to have experienced such an ideal environment, and I never thought I would encounter anything like it again.


Thank you, BUV, for giving me so many memories, lessons, and incredible people!


Due to the unique nature of studying at BUV, the three years here felt incredibly short. Make the most of your opportunities and the remaining time at BUV to explore as much as possible before truly stepping into adulthood!
