UNO Mayu (APM)
College of International Management

I enrolled at APU in 2014 as a dual degree student and have resumed my studies back at APU after completing my two year’s stay at St. Edward's University (SEU). The two years that I spent at SEU was a precious, life changing experience for me. U.S. culture is very open to individuality which allowed me to discover what I truly enjoy doing and learning. By staying there for a longer period of time compared to the one-year student exchange program, I was able to deepen my studies and get involved with numerous extracurricular activities. If you are willing to face yourself and extend your strengths during your college years, this program is for you. I am sure you can see the world with a whole different perspective after your two years abroad.
