Giacomo became the first full-time Italian student on the Global BBA program joining in Spring 2023. He has quickly become an integral part of our community and is thoroughly enjoying life in Japan...
Today we are joined by Daniel from Honduras, who joined the Global BBA program in Fall 2021 after taking the national degree of Bachillerato from the American School of Tegucigalpa (AST).
Why did you want to study in Japan?
Japan has always intrigued me with its culture and the beauty of the country. It is very different from what I'm used to and so far I enjoy the uniqueness of everywhere I go.
What made you choose the Global BBA Program?
I first heard about NUCB through my school counselor. I was interested in studying business in Japan, and NUCB allowed me to do that. The application process was a bit nerve-racking, but it was professional and straight-to-the-point.
I was very interested in the Case Study Method as I had no experience with it before. I feel like it is a more efficient way to teaching rather than the traditional method as the teaching takes examples from real life situations, making the knowledge and information more interactive and practical.
So far, my favorite professor has been Anthony Townley. He’s a fun person to learn from, and his teaching style is very practical.
What do you do in your free time before/after class and on weekends?
For the weekends I usually hang out with my friends, going to the city or eating together. There are a lot of places to visit in Nagoya for having a good time with friends so it's perfect.
I am currently living in the Sanbongi Dormitory. I enjoy living in it as we make a sort of community with the other residents, and I've made friends with people I don't even have class with simply by living in the same complex.
