Exchange Student, Economics, 2008


Studying at HPU was among the most exciting and challenging experiences in my life. I recall year 2007 when I was a junior student in Ukraine vigorously searching for new opportunities to expand my knowledge in Economics and Finance


Visiting Student Program

The Visiting Students at Hawai'i Pacific University Program was created for students who want to spend one or two semesters in an inviting, international environment. Hawai'i Pacific University (HPU) allows you to select courses that will both interest and challenge you and, more importantly, that will help you meet your educational requirements at your home university.
