Jana Lachmann. BBA in Marketing, Germany

I chose to study at Virginia International University because the school offers much variety in different aspects of study. People of many nationalities come together here to learn and experience the "American way of life." VIU celebrates our unique diversity in every way and helps us to grow academically and personally by giving us a chance to see the world through others’ eyes, which I love. VIU also has affordable tuition rates for a good value in education, and class sizes are small, which makes learning easy for everybody. Right after my graduation, I picture myself working in a business that is targeted to children. Focusing on providing services to our future generation is very important to me. I am sure VIU’s excellent professors will help make my dream come true.
