In a globalized world, where borders keep wading away in all senses, we guide our students to develop deep understanding of multifaceted nature of local and global affairs. We inspire our graduates to appreciate, respect and thrive in diversity with emotional intelligence. We encourage them to collaborate to share – both governance and responsibility.
