“Architecture is the science that permits the man to reveal his own integrity in built form, and an architect’s highest responsibility is, first of all, to become whole as an individual in order to best carry out this mission, and then be of service to the world that he has created around himself. The Business of Architecture is putting integrity into form.”

Founder and President Elio D’Anna

Education today seems to be the antithesis to the classical models laid out by the ancient Greeks in which schools the pupil were encouraged to question, to participate, and before all else - to know themselves. The European School of Economics believes that the world one lives in is none other than a reflection of the inner states he lives, and that the more one knows and therefore masters himself, the more he can create a world that is pleasing for himself and others. All courses at the European School of Economics are centred around the individual as their most vital element.The world is a mere reflection of the world we live and dream internally. An individual whose aim is order and beauty cannot help but manifest this integrity in the external world. A man who loves himself and so, the world around him cannot help but create, emanate and instil order wherever he goes.... [-]
