Major: International Business

“I have the opportunity here to get to know people who are also international. I feel really lucky because we understand each other, our situations, and scenarios. We’re far away from home without our families, but I’m so glad that I met this group of people [...] sometimes we even teach each other our languages, so it’s a great culture exchange.”

Intended Major: Economics and Econometrics

“I love the campus, it’s beautiful. I really like the quad and the facilities. After class, I like hanging around with my friends [...] We all live on the same floor. We help each other a lot, and support others when they need it. I even got to teach two other Access students how to cook!”

Intended Major: Business Administration and Management

“I was applying to American University, and they gave me the option of American Access. It fit perfectly because I wasn’t so sure what I wanted to study, so it gave me the flexibility [...] I’ve decided to study business because I’ve learned from personal experience that I actually love to manage and create things. I would love to have an international company, and be able to go around the world.”

“I came to American University for several reasons. Washington D.C. is a great city. There are a lot of opportunities for finding an internship, communicating with native speakers, and lots of academic resources, while appreciating great beauty and museums.”
