Because we focus on the person, in his/her desire to live a life he/she has reason to value, our teaching and training are person-centered, on what students can achieve at their best. For this, besides formal class-room teaching, we emphasise personal “coaching”, which is important for acquiring requested knowledge and developing personal talents for the good of the person and society. In so doing, our ambition is to contribute, with other partners, to the flourishing of Macao community by giving it responsible experts open to wide horizons.
