Ruslan from Kazakhstan

Progressed to a degree in Business at Northeastern University

My pathway program helped me understand what was going to be expected of me at an American university, and what I had to expect from myself. I wasn’t learning just to get a good grade; I was learning for myself and for the experience, which in my opinion is the most valuable part about being in the US.
