From Buenos Aires to Cape Breton: Agustin’s Transformative Experience at CBU

Agustin Saint Bonnet’s journey to Cape Breton University (CBU) was not just a pursuit of academic excellence. A passionate and ambitious student hailing from the bustling city of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Agustin was on a transformational quest for a fresh start and a meaningful life experience. Drawn to Cape Breton’s lifestyle, natural beauty and strong sense of community, Agustin and his wife made a bold decision to leave behind their familiar surroundings and embark on an adventure to Canada.

Agustin is a student in CBU’s Post-Baccalaureate Program in Supply Chain Management. With more than 15 years of experience working for multinational companies like Becton Dickinson and ExxonMobil, Agustin started at CBU with determination as the University’s diverse and inclusive environment would provide him with unique opportunities to expand and enhance his skills in the Supply Chain field. 

Alongside his academic studies, Agustin has been making the most out of his time at CBU by immersing himself in the vibrant campus life. He joined CBU’s rugby team, participates in social activities, attends cultural events and engages with clubs that align with his interests. Agustin is excited to proudly represent the Capers and forge lasting friendships with his teammates and other fellow students with similar interests. 

“CBU is more than just an educational institution; it’s a community that embraces people from all walks of life. The inclusivity here fosters an environment where diverse perspectives and experiences converge, creating a dynamic and supportive learning space,” says Agustin, highlighting the significance of CBU’s commitment to inclusivity.

Here at CBU, Agustin found the perfect balance between his academic studies and personal growth, using every opportunity to connect with his peers and engage in experiences beyond the classroom. “The expertise and experience I’m gaining in the Supply Chain field are invaluable. CBU provides a platform for personal and professional growth, empowering me to make a positive impact in the world,” shares Agustin, recognizing the power of his CBU education.

As he continues to embrace change, explore and create lifelong connections, Agustin is grateful for the opportunities CBU has provided to transform his life and shape his future. “CBU’s commitment to fostering an environment of academic excellence, cultural diversity and community engagement has made my experience truly special,” Agustin adds.
