Continuing Education

Continuing Education

Learning does not finish once we finish a university program or master’s degree: it’s a continuing process. In the words of Brian Tracy: “Those people who develop the ability to continuously acquire new and better forms of knowledge that they can apply to their work and their lives will be the movers and shakers in our society for the indefinite future.”
