My BSBA has made the difference in the choice of my employers. Studying in such an international environment is definitely an asset for dealing with customers. I also think I am a quick learner. My good IT skills and time management are also a plus for my employers.

IUM isn't an ordinary university and for that reason the experience is special. The international environment cannot be beaten with all the nationalities in one place. Being exposed to many different cultures is something that cannot be found everywhere.
