Dr. Corrado added “AUPP embodies American education, offering quality learning experiences, and focusing on guiding students in their learning, while fostering their critical thinking skills, besides of course equipping them with the necessary soft and hard skills they need. Personal growth is important as much as their professional growth. I always repeat that in AUPP I see an enormous potential. Here, there is a great community, open-minded, with a mixed culture, and with respect for each other. The care that professors give to students, the honesty and transparency in everything is something that I cherish and makes me be proud to be part of the AUPP family.
I do hope to see the same motivation, and passion in the AUPP ecosystem today, tomorrow, and in the years to come, because this university has an enormous potential to unleash.”
