USJ is not only a university where people can get in and come out with a degree and student life memories. During my studies at USJ, I especially appreciated being taught by high quality professors from different parts of the world, with modern teaching methods, in a friendly and culturally diverse academic environment. The international and practical approach of the course supported by the needed theoretical basis really helped me look at things differently with a wider perspective in my work. I use to tell my friends, colleagues and family members about all these strengths of the USJ and recommend them to consider this honourable institution when looking for a local university to obtain a degree.
