What students and graduates say about the program
I am really grateful for having the chance to receive my education at HAU, a truly American higher education institution. I got equipped with all the tools to be successful in my marketing career, not only through theoretical work, but also through success stories and real-life examples. I also developed critical thinking skills, got over my fear of public speaking and learned how to write professionally. These are soft skills that are often overlooked at the start of your studies but trust me, they are the ones making the difference.1 of 1
