Lavinia, Bachelor Student in Economics and Business Administration

My name is Lavinia Silva,

I am from Maceió, Brazil and I’m currently enrolled in a Bachelor programme in Economics and Business Administration (BScB) at Aarhus BSS.

The first time I came to Denmark was as an exchange student in high school. By then, I was already overwhelmed by the Danish culture and society and I knew this could be an ideal place to study.

Before enrolling to Aarhus BSS, I studied one-year higher education at the Brazilian university, UFCG. Although Aarhus is completely different from what I was used to, I do not regret my decision of coming to Denmark.

Aarhus BSS offers high quality education, with great structure and many opportunities to boost my career. In addition, I feel that my programme lives up to my expectations as I get an international perspective of the different aspects of business while constantly putting theory into practice.   

Not to mention, living in Aarhus is a plus. It has a huge international community that provides you with a great network and friendly environment. There are always nice places and events to spend your free time on.    

From my own experience, I must say it requires a lot of focus and hard-work. Especially, when you are far away from home it can be challenging, but I assure you, it is completely worth it. My advice for you is: do not be afraid to get out of your comfort zone and embrace the challenges. You will see how rewarding it can be.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me on my e-mail below. I will be happy to help you!
