Being an undergraduate student at GAU has enabled me to experience education through a new perspective. It is quite a challenge, but I believe it is worth every effort. The University is an inspiring place to learn and it sets international standards required to succeed in the global business. Not only has it allowed me to become knowledgeable in my field of study, an independent learner and self motivated, but I’ve also met people from various walks of life. To summarize my experience so far I would simply use the word exhilarating. "   Nelicia Braganza, Kuwait, BSc in Business Administration 2009 GAU.
