Training for more than 15% of our part-time students is funded by their employers , and this figure is growing every year. Funding for higher education motivates the employee, and at the same time is a more profitable decision for the employer than an increase in salaries or payment of bonuses.

Be sure to offer your employer the opportunity to invest in the most important assets of the company - in talented people.
