We like to keep in contact with our 6500+ graduates all around the world and through them continue to develop our network of contacts, even in areas where we do not yet have our own school or office. Wherever you want to go tomorrow, we believe that we can help to take you there.
“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
