Andre (Andy) Montenegro
My name is Andre Montenegro; however, my friends and acquaintances call me Andy.
There are many reasons related to choosing VIU. However, I will point out only three: First, the University has an excellent reputation in Canada. Second, the MBA program is accredited by ACBSP, which reinforces its seriousness. Also, there is an option that you can add some classes to obtain a dual degree. Finally, the program price matches my budget.
I believe that the teachers’ support and availability have been the most important part of my ESL studies at VIU. To be honest, if you need support, there will always be someone to help you.
And my advice for new students joining VIU? Remember that you are living in another culture, and you are interacting with people from all over the world. Thus, always be open-minded and respectful. It will prevent you from being biased or worse.
Of course, you need to be focused on your studies, but try your best to enjoy your stay as much as you can. Vancouver Island is a beautiful region, and there are many activities to do.
