Mission and Vision

Education on demand

Our education is on-demand and offers you a platform to grow professionally and work together with other professionals from different networks. The Value Creator is an innovative environment where we support and encourage our students to create their own learning path and give them space to come up with innovative, creative and valuable solutions. Enjoy the journey!

For example, last year a group of students worked together addressing UN Global Sustainable Development Goals 3 (Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages) and 11 (make cities inclusive, safe and sustainable) by participating in a challenge in Asturias, Spain. They looked into ways to improve the life of older people living in big cities; they did so by exploring the urban facilities available that could support them. In this journey they created a large network on their own and found numerous E-Health companies and other urban-related solutions. By connecting existing networks within Asturias province and giving their advice on how to collaborate they created value for the region, the elderly citizens and innovations in health care.
