8 WE BELIEVE THAT EDUCATION SHOULD HELP YOU BECOME YOUR BEST VERSION OF YOU. DON T YOU AGREE? We re all different and we re born with a gift. Picasso said that all children are artists... Why should they stop? Education tends to standardize, to rein in talent... to penalize the risk of thinking differently. It is time to change. Because when you go to university, that unique gift you were born with is still there, unawakened. You still have all the potential to shine. And this is our mission: to help you become your best version of you, knowing that everyone learns in a different way. The rules of work have changed. Forever. We think people will work in a new way. Without borders. Your profession will be part of your life, and so enjoying your work will be essential to your happiness. That s why we need to be a different university for each individual, to help you develop fully as a person and as a professional So that you become your best version of you, the one that will make you shine.
