It is difficult to answer the question “how we are”, so we will tell you “what we are”:

We are optimization: Our task is not to kill your time, giving you as much theory as possible, but to teach you the most useful information, that you will need in your professional life. To do this, we always listen to you carefully, and we are optimizing our study plans accordingly, it may change in order to adapt it to everyone’s needs as much as possible.

We are the reality: Our teachers are not just professors, with a lot of scientific publications, they are Young and energetic people, with experience in different spheres of Hospitality, Tourism and Business administration. They will guide you through this world, not reading the information from the books published in 1968, but providing you the real-life examples and advice.

We are eco: We have elaborated a strict Corporate Responsibility Policy that includes ecology, social and economic spheres, trying to reduce the use of white paper, and if needed, use the recycled one. We are transforming all provided study resources into digital, starting from the brochures with our course information to the books and material we use in class.

We are innovation: While the world is waiting for augmented reality, we are moving towards it, connecting our three campuses in one class!. We hope that in some years there will be no difference, whether you are in Barcelona, Valencia or Madrid, we can all be together.

We are family: That´s why our team is small and we are keeping it this way. Coming from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds we are passionate about the world of Hospitality, Tourism, Business and Languages and that unites us. We try to treat each of our students personally, as much as we can (but we are not almighty).

So if you want to come to classes just to sleep somewhere on the back row or to show to your parents that you are studying – we will not be your choice. But if you share the same feelings about the world of Hospitality, Tourism, Business and Languages and ready to drive deep inside – don´t doubt. Join us for the next intake!
