We invite you to be involved and participate by sharing your experience. To participate as a current student click here. To participate as an alumnus and professional click here.   THANK YOU to the students who have answered our survey!   Today, we are proud  to plant the seeds of what is going to be  the very first ranking of universities in South East Asia that looks at what students really think of their university experience, and that can be used by all students to choose the best university for them!   To make this ranking, we have been collecting the opinions of students on their universities.

Michelle sees part of her leadership role as being a good example to others across the country and that is how she continues to inspire her fellow American citizens as well the wider world.   What makes Michelle a strong leader? She has always held

If you have the chance to sit down and plan, what will you be doing next year and how are you going to make the most out of a year’s time? Have you ever thought about breaking free from the ‘9 to 5’ lifestyle, and look for an opportunity to end poverty, discover what having impact means to you, learn and explore yourself to become a better leader? Do you want to have an exciting and self-rewarding experience that might as well allow you to improve the lives of the people in the developing world? No seriously, do you want to change the world?   If your answer is “yes” to the above questions, and if you are a person who have a solid business background and yet you would like to achieve something greater in your career because you have a passion in initiating positive social changes, the Acumen Fund Global Fellows Program may be the best place for you to start your journey. Unlike many international development organizations, Acumen Fund believes that
