HUSS gave me the ability to work with different people. This ability is one of the key things for entrepreneurs to succeed. In TBS we hire attitude, characters and then we teach them how to do their jobs. HUSS gives the opportunity to study something that gives the best experience of a life time.

I owe my gratitude to AUC and HUSS for allowing me to develop myself academically and co-curricular. It has been an extraordinary experience that falls right within my studies and interests in multilateral affairs and international relations. I look forward to what's to come and I'm excited to continue working in the public/civil spheres.
