Golf is a universal ‘language’ and our students come from all around the world to share their love for the game and to establish the necessary academic foundation for a successful career.
Port St. Lucie, FL (PRWEB) June 18, 2012
Golf is a growing sport and industry around the world, and Keiser University College of Golf is proud to announce the continued academic success of its international students.
Keiser University College of Golf School recognizes Kamil Chojnicki of Warsaw, Poland, who successfully completed his Associate of Science degree in Golf Management. He has attended Keiser University College of Golf since February 2011 and plans to play on the Polish and German tours and teach after graduation. Another Polish-born student, Matsuez Kniaginin, also from Warsaw, is graduating this month as well.
“I already had a bachelor’s degree in management but decided I did not want to work in an office all day so I switched. I have a passion and love for golf and being here at Keiser was the best experience of my life,” said Chojnicki, who chose Keiser University College of Golf over golf education facilities in Spain and Australia. “There’s no better place to study golf management than right here.”
Chojnicki and Kniaginin have fulfilled the golf degree educational requirements for credit hours and completed courses in golf course design and maintenance, golf club fitting and repair, tournament operations, retail management, golf history and many other aspects of golf course management and the game overall.
“We’re very proud of Kamil, Matsuez and all of our international graduates,” says John McMurry, Campus Vice-President of Keiser University College of Golf. “Golf is a universal ‘language’ and our students come from all around the world to share their love for the game and to establish the necessary academic foundation for a successful career.”

Keiser University College of Golf also gives students daily access to several PGA Master Professionals, such as Brian Hughes, Dr. Eric Wilson, and Golf Magazine top 100 teacher T.J. Tomasi.
International students are accepted at Keiser University College of Golf with an F-1 visa that is good for the length of the program.
