- Learning by Doing
Learning by Doing is a philosophy of professional and personal training for life that fundamentally differentiates us from other universities. It consists of practical work and labor and the implementation of sound scientific and business knowledge in a real world context. This philosophy encourages the students to use their skills and dexterity for problem solving in various environments, and in the modern workplace context. We continually improve this system to meet changing needs and dynamics.
