The philosophy of the programme
The philosophy of the programme puts the human resources upfront and liberates people’s creativity by transforming the School into a structure where students and teachers’ intelligence and talent are expressed, leading our students to speciﬁc goals and supporting them to reach unimaginable summits which they might not even have imagined they could reach. In this programme, the educational conditions stimulate the curiosity and creativity of students, while the professors are guiding, provoking, and trying to awaken their consciousness. Each student is linked with an academic advisor from the very first day, guiding them throughout their studies.
