Self Discovery

Self-Discovery (EN)

For over fifteen years, Admissions-Office has been guiding students on journeys of Self-Discovery to help them determine their true passions and select university majors and career paths where they will thrive.  Students are guided by a team AO Counselors comprised of specialists in various fields such as Business, Engineering, Science, Design, Medicine, and Law among others.  AO Counselors have guided students as young as 8 years old all the way through professionals working at SCG, PTT Group, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, Bain & Company, The Boston Consulting Group, and McKinsey & Co.

The process begins with a face-to-face discussion with a student and their parents to determine their interests. From this point, a personalized program is designed especially to serve the needs of each student.
