Well-known companies from the business world as well as public institutions and non-profit organizations have been cooperating with us for many years now when it comes to further qualifying their training specialists and managers.

Academic continuing education is for both specialists who want to stay up to date and people who want to reorient themselves professionally and thus has an important role to play in promoting lifelong learning and helping to constantly expand a society's level of knowledge.

Our offer for you
