Testimony from Bircham International University graduates


It is not the degree that makes a great person;

it is the person that makes the degree great.


A person's reputation depends much on his or her professional career and achievements. It also depends on a good education the individual has acquired, firmly established with a university diploma. Most companies employment criteria is driven by the candidate's know-how, ability to solve problems, and other practical skills, and not just the university degree. Bircham International University students and graduates have gotten jobs or promotions in leading companies worldwide. Many felt a considerable increase in their self-esteem and social status. Most of them had moved on to a better job, had been promoted, or had received a salary raise.


There are many success stories among Bircham International University graduates, but we do not know all of them. With all the respect for the privacy of your life, we would like to read your testimony here. Your story may be helpful for other people. It may motivate current students to continue working in their programs of study, it may encourage BIU graduates to aim high in their personal lifes and professional affairs, it may help the decision of those candidates who are now considering Bircham International University a suitable option for their future education.


Probably you would have loved to read some of these stories.

Well, why don't you start telling yours?

Testimony from Bircham International University graduates



Abdikadir Issa Farah (Somalia):
Doctor Ph.D. in Educational Administration
TESTIMONY: "Opportunity knocks the door once not twice. Learning from BIU is unique, and its learning sessions are different from on campus learning universities.

My sincere thanks to Bircham University."

Adão Henrique Saldanha Ribeiro Pizarro (Portugal):
Specialist Diploma in Natural Heath
TESTIMONY: "Tive a felicidade de conhecer a Bircham University. Depois de muitas perguntas que fiz, e sempre prontamente elucidado de forma categórica pelo Exº Sr. Cesar Martinez, não exitei mais e me inscrevi na formação de Especialista em Saude Natural. Já tinha efectuado em Portugal várias formações nesta área, em E-larning, mas com a Bircham University, tudo foi diferente. Diferente na exigência e no rigor, na forma e no método que têm de nos enviar os livros e respectivo material de estudo, na calma que nos transmitem durante o processo e o tempo de estudo, tirando-nos qualquer dúvida e aconselhando-nos para a devida calma, mas sempre pedindo o nosso esforço e dedicação com os principios definidos que não me canso de repetir. Assim, o seu método, de fazer com que sejam lidos os respectivos livros, a forma como temos que reler para ir anotando as nossas descobertas para a elaboração do nosso trabalho é tão intensa, que sem darmos conta disso, já lemos os diversos capítulos de cada livro 3 ou 4 vezes. Dessa forma, é bem claro que aprendemos mesmo as matérias por eles estipuladas e fazemos o nosso trabalho e com o orgulho de dever cumprido, fixando essa aprendizagem para o resto da vida."

Ahmed Mohamoud Warsame (Somalia):
Master's Degree in Public Administration - Human Resources Management
TESTIMONY: "You kept me pushing my career forward since I joined this honorable university and at last here I am reaping my rewards. For me it was an incredible dream to have a post graduate degree in Somalia where I live now, where there was no functional government for the last 20 years. I still remember when i was collecting some of my colleagues to join this university with me and how hard it was to convince them to do their masters through distance learning. I confess that many of them have already had their master degrees before me from Bircham University. Thanks to the staff of Bircham University MEA, specially Graziella who was the bridge between me and the university, and who was coordinating the program tirelessly. In fact text books were being sent on time, evaluation reports on time, and any other needed information was timely circulated. After that, as you stated I am satisfied that I made great development and career building, and benefited from the courses I have been given through your distance learning programs with your continuous whisper in my ear day and night. I have to say that unless I would not join this university, my dreams would still remain dreams and would not see the light."

Anton D. Buttigieg (Malta):

Cum Laude in Information Technology
TESTIMONY: "Talking from my personal experience, I had spent 4 months searching throughout the web for distance learning universities throughout the world. I was looking for flexibility, value for money, organization and professionalism. I found all these attributes in the Bircham University degree I pursued, through which I could read, study and write at my own pace, and balance my time between full-time work, study and my personal life, thereby practising time management and self discipline. I am doing my best to encourage my friends and colleagues to consider taking a Bircham University degree so that they may share the same rewarding experience as myself.

Brigitte Johannilla Maria De Lange (Ecuador):
Master's Degree in Neural / Brain Science
TESTIMONY: "Today, I received my diploma (master of science neural/brain science) which finalizes two years of studying at Bircham University. As a whole, my studying experience at Bircham University was a pleasant one. I want to congratulate Bircham University on the choice of the name of the program, neural and brain science. It results to be a progressive name since science has proven the brain to be not only about neurons, but more about glia, the 'other' brain cells, as you may have read in my final report. So neuro (neural) science is only half the game. I also wanted to share some good news with you. My first book about the brain has been published!   It is about brainconscious living and how to keep your brain healthy into old age. The book is based on the final paper I wrote for Bircham University, but it is adapted for the general public. I also developed a special website about brainconscious living I want to thank Bircham for giving me the tools to pursue this new direction in my life."

Daniel Werner Morduch (Israel):
Bachelor's Degree in Philosophy
Doctor Ph.D. in Philosophy of Mind
TESTIMONY: "Bircham University has certainly more than satisfied my expectations. In the beginning of the program, I asked if Bircham University would help me to decide the title of my thesis. Bircham University replied that in their experience reading and studying for the books assigned would suggest the best thesis topic. Indeed, so it has been. The more I immersed myself in my studies the clearer did it become what the thesis would be about. I’m now writing my PhD thesis (Philosophy of Mind) and take this opportunity to thank the Bircham University for all that it has given me during my years of study. I am reflecting on what you wrote in your letter and believe that it is not the words and sentences in the books that I have studied that have created the interest in me to study but rather it is the way that the Bircham University has influenced me to look for the deeper truth in the books which I read. I have felt the personal interest which the examiners, especially Professor Carmen Ramirez Hurtado, took in my work and which encouraged me to delve deeper into the meaning of the sentences in the books. That part of my studies is now officially behind me but my studies will always be part of me. For this I am grateful!"


Darryl Herrington (U.S.A.):
Doctor Ph.D. in Petroleum & Natural Gas Engineering
TESTIMONY: "My experience with Bircham University in Madrid Spain was very rewarding. Working with my advisor was of great help. He was an inspiration to my spirit and encouragement to complete one of my life's goals set when I had first entered University many years ago. Having to work to support my home and family I was encouraged by all to complete my dreams. Having succeeded from my studies and hard work I have grown in confidence and mental abilities. I share my knowledge with others to help better their lives and tasks. I take pride in Bircham University as being one of the best international universities where its students share from their world experiences. My mind was not confined to traditional classes and limited experiences. From the use of the Internet our time has come to expand our minds into the far reaches where there is no limits. Like an old Chinese proverb, "seek not to find answers but seek to understand the questions". Bircham University provided ability for me to accomplish this as ongoing in my quest for knowledge. Thank you Universidad Bircham Madrid de España.  I am now living back in Texas. I have left the company that I was with in Australia and am now working with a major oil company and with one of the largest oil industry engineering companies. I am a chief consulting engineer responsible for deep offshore drilling and completion engineering operations. Just before being accepted for work with these companies, they had a full back ground check made on me as well as looking into my Ph.D. degree from Bircham University and other education degrees plus my engineering certification. I was passed with a full acceptance for work and ability. This was good for I thought that maybe someone would make a debate over my schooling with Bircham University. But this was not the case. They were proud to have me on board handling critical engineering applications with responsibility of 150+ million dollar drilling programs. I have been approved by the UK government Engineering Councils Register for professional engineer. I thank you and all at Bircham University for your support and advanced education. I will continue to do my best and provide good engineering practices and respond to the needs of others. I will serve in good standing all that I had learned from Bircham University. Well you will not believe this, after a long interview via phone conference with the director of the school science department from Oxford University in the UK and with two key professors and from many difficult questions, I thought that I would not be accepted. They asked me many things on my past schooling dating back when I first went to college and my studies and grades to my time up to Bircham University and my experiences with Bircham studies programs. After the interview I thought that I had not done well and that it was over as far as me being accepted or attending school at Oxford University. The next day the school phoned me and also sent a special delivery letter and sent an email stating that I am accepted to attend University of Oxford post graduate studies in Nanotechnology. I had been selected one out of hundreds that had applied."

David Wayne Deeds (Georgia):
Doctor Ph.D. in Educational Technology
Cum Laude in Educational Technology
TESTIMONY: "I work and live overseas... I'm a teacher. From 2002 to 2008, I taught at a university and college in Korea; now I'm at an international school in Georgia. After finishing two master's degrees, I searched all over the world for a Ph.D. program that was: (a) affordable, which includes not requiring obsolete residency periods; (b) online, so I could do my research via the Internet; (c) flexible enough to allow me to write a dissertation that could/would be published and thus read. Only Bircham University met every one of my requirements. I wrote my thesis as a series of articles, 100% (110% actually, considering a follow up piece also got accepted) of which has appeared in peer-reviewed, professional journals. I didn't have to fly around the planet to sit in dusty libraries...I did everything from the comfort of my Asian apartment...books and the WWW were all the sources/references I needed. Having my Bircham University Ph.D. has opened several entire career fields to me...for now I'll be pursuing becoming an Internet Technology Director for a school...via being the Educational Technologist (my doctorate is in this area). The academic world is not populated with the open-minded...on the contrary, schools are the worst for harboring dinosaurs who are threatened by progress. People are going to tell you Bircham University is unaccredited. Accreditation is a financial matter, which determines whether or not an organization can offer federal loans...that's all. People are going to tell you an online Ph.D. isn't as good as an on ground one. It wasn't so long ago that the same thing was said about online master's an online MS/MA is considered more prestigious because of the self-motivation and other qualities students must possess in order to succeed at them. Don't listen to the Luddites. Bircham University will have ISO accreditation soon and this will shut up the critics for good. In the meantime, have faith in what you know is right...and what hundreds of satisfied Bircham University graduates tell you. Get started now and beat your competition to the punch. Sooner or later everyone will come to Bircham University... Be one of the pioneers... The early adopters!"


Dina Ramzy Zaklama (Egypt):
Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology - Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Doctor Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology
TESTIMONY: "First of all I was so surprised and touched by the fact that you are registering my birthday and sending me wishes. This is a human touch that is very much appreciated. First of all, I would like to express how satisfied I am with the learning experience at Bircham University. Ms. Graziella can explain to you how much I was worried before entering the Master's program. I am 52 years old, loaded with responsibilities and already working on two jobs. I have a husband and two adult children. I always wished to complete my higher studies, but did not have a chance in my life to do so. Had it not been for Bircham University and the support I got from Ms. Graziella, I wouldn't have decided to do so. During my studies, it went so smooth and my grade point average is 4.0, and I finished my thesis, and now I am enrolling to proceed with Ph.D., which I did not have the intention before, but because of the pleasant time I spent, I decided to do so. The university has been so flexible, co-operative and supportive that I enjoyed the learning experience. I am already giving my word of mouth to a lot of people here in Egypt about my great experience with Bircham University, and of course I would be honored to give my testimony, as an aged adult who, with the help of Bircham University was able to make it. Just give me a chance to prepare some flowery words that suit what I really feel about the university. Again I am thanking you for your support and co-operation and above all your human and friendly touch with the students, who though are far away in distance, but you always make us feel as close as can be. My very best regards and appreciation. Actually my experience with Bircham University was more than satisfactory. I benefited so much, and I was able to finish in due time with excellence. Everybody was super co-operative and it felt great. However, I have had a major problem with my certificate that makes me not a good candidate for the testimonials. Here in my country, in order to obtain a license as a psychologist, my certificate needs to be accredited from the association AMIDEAST. This association mentioned that Bircham University is not listed among the universities they give accreditation for. Hence I was not able to get my license and probably never will. However, Bircham University did their utmost to help me with my problem. They gave me other legalizations, and they stamped my certificate from the State Security office and the Egyptian consulate in Spain. But still it didn't work, because as long as the AMIDEAST refuses, nothing will work regarding my license. That is why my experience and satisfaction is not complete. However I continue to thank Bircham University for their co-operation with me on this issue. I am always so happy to receive anything from my dear Bircham University, the institution that I had the most wonderful experience with. My testimony: "The excellent service and care I experienced in Bircham University, like attending promptly to emails, understanding my problems, and showing personalized care, truly impressed me. It felt like being there rather than "distance" learning.""

TESTIMONY: "I have pursued my undergraduate and post graduate degree programs in psychology through the Bircham International University distance learning. Currently I am working on my Ph.D. thesis in counseling psychology after having completed the course work. My supervisor for the thesis is a professor of psychology in a local state university. I am also doing my internship in a reputable counselling organization. The practicum and supervision are standard requirements by the B.I.U academic board. Studying through B.I.U programs is a rewarding experience because as a student I have been at liberty to plan my reading schedules to meet my assignment deadlines and to fulfill the stringent requirements of the B.I.U curriculum. As an adult student I am able to meet my employers obligations at the work place and also create time to be with my family while I study. B.I.U student support is is very efficient, therefore I have enjoyed reliable feedback from my professors on a regular basis. This has ensured that I am abreast with the curriculum and assignments standards of the university. The assignments have been marked on time as stipulated in the B.I.U assignments instructions form. I have noticed that the grades I acquire are commensurate with the quality of the assignment I have forwarded to the professor. My professional degree qualifications from B.I.U place me at a vantage position in my practice, since I am much more informed in my area of specialization, which also makes me more competitive in the job market. I personally feel much more confident knowing that I have achieved such mileage in my life through Bircham International University."

Guy Marc Bonem (Spain):
Doctor Ph.D. in Journalism - Creative & Script Writing
Cum Laude in Creative & Script Writing
TESTIMONY: "As a firm believer in ‘a healthy body needs a healthy brain’ (or the other way around), I have decided, a long time ago to adhere to ‘Life Long Learning’. With an MBA degree in Marketing Communications dating in the mid 90s, I thought (back in 2003) that time had come to get myself tempted by the next logical adventure – a PhD degree in Philosophy. It was certainly not for the sake of a career, or the search of an additional title, what triggered my will and determination. Living on a small island, with no real university background and tradition, I navigated the Internet until I found Bircham International University, with its European headquarters in Madrid, its unique and malleable program approach. Let me first thank Dr. William Martin and his entire team for always being dedicated and willing to help in all imaginable forms and aspects. Flexible tuition, a specifically tailored program, most generous time frames – these are only a few of the most outstanding aspects readily offered by the University. In my own case, as I had decided to write about the 7th Art (Cinema), my special focus had to be readdressed several times (same as the pace with which films become popular and forgotten about). Thus, I felt forced to start all over again, three times in four years, fully assisted and always readily encouraged by Bircham University Madrid. Finally, I not only got my PhD degree, but with a Magna Cum Laude on top. I am especially thankful to my professors, for the trust and honour conferred. I do warmly recommend Bircham International University to everyone willing to and ready for a new learning experience, extremely efficient and offside the traditional paths. I will further deepen my study experience and sincerely hope to be able to give some of it back, within Bircham University, to future students..."


Heddi Amabellsa Chappelle (U.S.A.):
Master's Degree in Plant Science - Molecular Cell Biology
TESTIMONY: "I am quite happy about my M.S. Plant Science, Molecular Cell Biology program. I am learning so much, and the flexibility of time allows me to delve into my areas of interest. It is nice that as a student, one has time to reflect on the information in the textbooks that Bircham University assigns as the textbooks are quite comprehensive and excellent and are the main ones on the university marketplace in the U.S. I am very happy with my Bircham University M.S. Plant Science/Molecular Biology studies. The program is so flexible--with flexible time to finish a report, that I am able to enjoy the "herculean" tasks of seriously delving into the subject matter that I am interested in learning. Currently, I am currently working on the Glick/Pasternack "Molecular Biotechnology" textbook assigned by Bircham University, and I am able to compare and contrast the material with other leading science textbooks such as those published by Cambridge University Press and similar on the subject so that I can write theoretical case studies on how to tell if an organism is a product of biotechnology. This said to be relatively new area (biotechnology) is also an important area of study to me for many botanical reasons such as plant quality and environmental safety. I am able to accomplish my research goals because of the flexibility of time that offers me the time to also use other quality textbooks, and other recent, leading scientific information. Due to Bircham University's flexibility and progressive learning style, I am able to surpass obstacles and increase my quality of learning in an efficient, productive manner that appeals to my lifestyle. I am learning so incredibly much. The Bircham University learning education system is what one makes out of it, and I find it quite advanced in that one can modify it to one's personal learning goals and time constraints. Now, as I am working on my thesis, I realized that I can also even incorporate important math/physics formula issues of plant science and cell biology. And, this is because of the flexibility of time that allows one to really study. I am just learning more, and more, and more in a very productive way. Thanks again."


Heino Matzken (Germany):
Doctor Ph.D. in International Relations
TESTIMONY: "I would like to take this opportunity to talk about my experiences with the education at Bircham University and agree to a publication of this testimony in the Bircham University Human Network. After having worked in the international environment as an German officer for quite a long time I started thinking about a PhD in international relations in 2003. Unfortunately, my university background was very IT heavy. I had studied computer science at the German armed forces university in Munich and passed a Masters of Science in professional computing at the British Stafford University. Due to this fact I had difficulties to find a Ph.D. program in international relations. Fortunately, I found the Bircham University, which took my language skills (German, English, French, Spanish and Arabic) and my experiences in international relations (military operations in Bosnia and Kosovo, German-French Brigade, NATO Headquarters in Belgium) into account. I started the Ph.D. program in 2003 with an comprehensive introduction in international relations, which lay the basis for my further work. After this intensive and interesting "learning phase", during which I was constantly supervised and accompanied by the experts of Bircham University, I started the work on my thesis concerning an "European Army". Thanks to the useful help of my Prof. I finished the work after twelve months and proudly received my degree. Now, five years after my PhD program, I look back and value the effort I put in this "follow-on education". Thanks to the PhD and what I have learned at Bircham University, I was able to develop my professional career. Since 2008 I am one of two German exchange officers at the French Minister of Defence in Paris where I constantly develop my knowledge in international relations. Furthermore, I was accepted by several journals (Europäische Sicherheit, Österreichische Militärzeitschrift ÖMZ) to publish regularly articles about geo-political developments in the Near East. Looking back, I am proud having successfully finished the Bircham University program. Even more important is the fact that the education I got by Bircham University helped myself to change and develop my professional career in a way I always wanted to do. Finally, I would like to encourage everybody to take his destiny in his own hands and to start an education at Bircham University."

Con el método de enseñanza a distancia se hace compatible el desempeño de tareas laborales y familiares con la investigación, al no tener que estar atado a horarios, fechas inamovibles, etc. En definitiva, permite desarrollar capacidades y cumplir objetivos que de otra manera quedarían frustrados. A nivel laboral, el doctorado me ha abierto las puertas para publicar en revistas de carácter científico y me ha posibilitado integrarme en un grupo de investigación de la universidad en el que varios profesores de forma conjunta una línea de estudio que se se va consolidando como una oferta permanente del centro."

This was achieved with the help and endorsement of the CUFCE Validation of my Bircham University degree. Me dirijo a ustedes una vez más para darles mis más sinceros agradecimientos por el apoyo prestado durante mis estudios de "Bachelor y Master of Arts in Linguistics". Ya he recibido algunas propuestas de algunas Universidades de Estados Unidos para impartir clases de Español; en concreto de Breyer State University, Los Angeles, California. Asimismo, he propuesto a la Universidad de Valencia matricularme en un curso de doctorado; su respuesta fue la siguiente: "Podrán también acceder a los cursos de doctorado aquellas personas que estén en posesión de títulos de Masters extranjeros legalizados por la apostilla de la Haya, sin necesidad de su homologación, pero previa comprobación de que los Masters acrediten un nivel de formación equivalente a los correspondientes títulos españoles de Master y una carta de la universidad extranjera en que conste que el alumno está capacitado para seguir los estudios de Doctorado. El acceso por esta vía no implicará, en ningún caso, la homologación del título previo de que esté en posesión el interasado, ni su reconocimiento a otros efectos que el de cursar enseñanzas de doctorado. Una vez superados los estudios de Doctorado, el título de doctor obtenido tendrá plena validez oficial". En la actualidad (2014) me encuentro realizando un Máster en Lenguas y Tecnología en la Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (España), gracias a los estudios realizados en Bircham International University."

Llamé y me encantó su profesionalismo, el modo de tratar a los estudiantes, su accesibilidad y sobre todo hablan el idioma español. Rápidamente llamé a la Universidad y me matriculé. Mucha gente piensa que los grados universitarios a distancia no funcionan y que son bien fáciles de hacer.

TESTIMONY: "Al margen de reconcimientos externos, el mas importante es el reconocimiento propio, el de uno mismo. En mi caso, todo continua como antes, pero tras completar la titulación de Bircham University uno siente que ha cerrado una puerta que dejo entreabierta y eso repercute en uno mismo, ¿que no está reglada por el ministerio?, da igual, eso solo es para los que buscan empleo público. ¿Cómo ha contribuido Bircham University a mi trayectoria profesional o personal?. Creo que profesionalmente no ha contribuido, al menos en términos cuantitativos de remuneración y cargo dentro de una empresa (aunque nunca se sabe). Donde si ha contruido es en el ámbito personal. Es decir, en cómo uno se siente, aquí el beneficio, al menos en mi caso, ha sido infinito. Supongo que esa satisfacción personal y sentimiento de seguridad también revierte de algún modo en lo profesional."

TESTIMONY: "It is a great pleasure to study in such a respectful university. It is fantastic that we can plan our studies according to our possibilities, but also I want to point out that Bircham is not a universiy for any kind of student. It is for students that are capable of doing research in all possible ways by themselves. This is something I consider one of the most important aspects that Bircham provides to their students. The capacity to become a real professional researcher. CONGRATULATIONS! I am very proud of been one of your students. Pido disculpas por no haber enviado un correo antes dando las gracias por darme la oportunidad de realizar mis sueños. Ha sido un gran honor y placer el haber podido estudiar en su centro, lo he disfrutado mucho. La forma en que se aprende en Bircham debería ser aplicada en todos los centros de aprendizaje.

Liliana B. Chocarro (Canada):
Doctor Ph.D. in Executive Management
TESTIMONY: "My experience with Bircham University was positive. As a mature student, while looking for the right educational institution, I had to find one that was serious and at the same time provided the necessary flexibility to work towards my Ph.D. I found those at Bircham. The kind of distance program they offered had the advantage of allowing me certain freedom in choosing the topic. In a way I think this lack of stringency at this point is because of their philosophy to put the responsibility on the student. The lack of supervision by the faculty was another point that was different from any other university, so I had to find guidance from other people outside the university. Lastly, the lack of public defense was another unique feature. The final evaluation was done thoroughly according to the comments received by the evaluation panel. In my case, this was a goal I had and Bircham met my needs, which may not be the same for other students wishing to pursue post-doc careers."

Nicole P. Johnson-Smith (U.S.A.):
Doctor Ph.D. in English Language Teaching
TESTIMONY: "Many colleagues ask me where I got my doctorate and how long it took, as well as the costs. While I began in 2000 with the program, I chose Bircham because at that time, I was interested in teaching in the United States as well as overseas. I was also interested in doing research in education and language development. Bircham's program was perfect for what I wanted to do.  Then, life happened...I was married and had children, and my education was no longer the priority, so it took much longer than I wanted it to.  However, my choice in Bircham for my Ph.D was the best thing because the flexibility it offered allowed me to take my time while finishing my doctorate. Even when I thought I was not going to finish, the staff at Bircham continued to encourage me and remain patient while they understood life's interruptions, and it made me more determinied to be finished. Best of all, the staff always offered help, suggestions, encouragement, and just kept me in the loop with information on program changes and anything else going on at Bircham. When I finally finished the program, I was touched to find that I still receive emails remembering my birthday, emailed newsletters with updates on Bircham, and I was very happy to know that the people I consulted with were still there to communicate with me when I had questions. Thank you, Bircham -- you made my doctorate attainable and helped me every step of the way!"

Shahrzad Jalali Alami (U.S.A.):
Master's Degree in Business Administration - Finance
TESTIMONY: "One's opinion of life can be expressed as challenging, irresistible, exciting and or in some cases, unfair and difficult. The perception of life, on the other hand, can be characterized by one's own perspective and attitude toward life and steps taken.  No matter how challenging it may seems, it is actually our own ability to overcome the impediments such as fear, instability and lack of confidence. For me, however, overcoming those obstacles have been the force behind my alluring ambitions and goals.  There is no perfect solution as there are no perfect us. But, there is always hope and imagination, which without, there is no advancement nor progress. And, most importantly, there is belief, believing in ourselves. Having said all that, one of the most contributing factors behind  success is  the power of support and attributes one can endure from all kinds of sources. And, that is why I am proud to say that in addition to my family, Bircham University did just that by giving me the opportunity to advance my knowledge, empower my abilities, elevating my self confidence and moral behavior as well as giving me the chance of lifetime achievement in leadership for which I am who I am today and I am what I do and contribute to my society. That is the kind of support that Bircham International University is proudly capable of gifting and providing. "

Syed Mohibullah (Afghanistan):
Bachelor's Degree in Human Resources Management
TESTIMONY: "I thank Bircham University from the heart for enabling me to study as well as continuing my job. Following my enrollment at Bircham University in 2007 I have not only developed my career from a middle officer to an executive manager but have also improved the institution as a whole. As I went through each study material received from Bircham University I found it more and more useful and enjoyed reading and implementing it. For instance, before my enrollment at Bircham University I had no idea of Professional Certification of PHR (Professional in Human Resources) and SPHR (Senior Professional in HR), GPHR (Global Professional in HR), CCP, CBP, CPT Etc. Similarly through Bircham University I came to know about some important institutions and organizations such as Human Resources Certification Institution (HRCI), International Personnel Management Association (IPMA), American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) and Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM). So far I have practiced and assumed HR as an Operational function of an organization, however through the guidance from Bircham University, I understood that HR is now being emerged as a Strategic Approach and organizations’ success is accomplished by developing HR strategies. The improvements and achievements i have made, have been recognized by the institutions I'm involved and thus several of my colleagues have become the members of Bircham University, who are equally benefiting from it. Thank you Bircham International University. Operations Manager, HLP/MAIL- World Bank. Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock (Afghanistan)"

Of course, the fact that your degree may not be listed will not prejudice your application, it simply means that it was not included in UNESCO's and IAU's database and HR practitioners will conduct further checks during the background verification stage."
