Η εμπειρία στο American College για μένα είναι μοναδική. H ποιότητα των διαλέξεων είναι υψηλή. Κάθε μέρα μαθαίνω κάτι καινούριο και ενδιαφέρον. Τα μαθήματα διδάσκονται από καθηγητές που είναι ειδικοί στον τομέα τους. Η οργάνωση του κολεγίου είναι εξαιρετική. Το περιβάλλον είναι πολύ ζεστό και φιλόξενο. Οι καθηγητές και το προσωπικό του American College είναι δίπλα στους φοιτητές σε ότι χρειαστούν και τους στηρίζουν. Το Κολέγιο προσφέρει απογευματινά-βραδινά μαθήματα και αυτό μου δίνει την ευκαιρία να συνδυάζω τις σπουδές με εργασία. Εκτός από τις ικανότητες που αποκτάς, το πτυχίο στη Διοίκηση Επιχειρήσεων θα με βοηθήσει και στην ανέλιξη που θα ήθελα στο χώρο εργασίας μου. Η μόρφωση που αποκτώ κάθε μέρα με βοηθά να βελτιώνομαι στην εργασία μου, στις επαγγελματικές μου σχέσεις, αλλά και σε προσωπικό επίπεδο. Κάθε μέρα πιάνω τον εαυτό μου να εφαρμόζει στη δουλειά αυτά που μαθαίνω στο Κολέγιο και αυτό μου δίνει ακόμα μεγαλύτερο κίνητρο για να μάθω περισσότερα.

Επέλεξα να σπουδάσω Διοίκηση Επιχειρήσεων γιατί είναι μία πιο γενική σπουδή που θα βοηθήσει στο να έχω περισσότερες επιλογές σχετικά με το τι να ακολουθήσω πιο μετά. Το γραφείο καριέρας του κολεγίου με βοήθησε, μεταξύ άλλων, στο να ετοιμάσω το βιογραφικό μου και μου βρήκε δουλειά σχετική με τις σπουδές μου στην οποία μπορώ να εργάζομαι και να σπουδάζω ταυτόχρονα. Αγαπημένο μου μάθημα είναι το digital marketing. Θα σύστηνα το American College σε κάποιο φίλο μου για τα προσιτά του δίδακτρα αλλά και για τους καθηγητές του που είναι πάρα πολύ βοηθητικοί.
