“We are proud to join this prestigious educational group which we are sure will offer us the opportunities and synergies we need to strengthen our institution further. The mindset and vision of OMNES Education are ideally aligned with EU, and we are certain that they will bring immense added value to our academic offerings.” says Carl Craen.
