Behind the partnership is the university’s collaboration with Brigham Young University – Hawaii (BYUH), an LDS-affiliated university. It can be recalled that a General Bilateral Agreement (GBA) was signed between the universities wherein BU will be offering BYUH Filipino students the post-baccalaureate requirement needed to take licensure examinations. The partnership is set to continue to foster academic excellence and knowledge-sharing in the years to come.
