About School

About School

The university’s core curriculum consists of courses that help students develop the ethics, innovativeness, critical thinking and communication skills necessary for a lifetime career of leadership. 

By teaching students to explore the connections between different information, separate the relevant from the irrelevant, question assumptions and analyse alternatives, the liberal core serves as a foundation for success and influencing the world. The university education develops students' critical thinking skills, by teaching them to explore the connections between fields of knowledge, separate relevant information from the irrelevant, question assumptions, reflect on the views of other people, and explore and analyze alternative explanations to the many aspects of human existence.

Our core curriculum is always evolving, but typically includes courses in the areas of written and oral communication, leadership and community services and mathematics and quantitative thinking. The service learning component is a requirement for graduation, and exists as another dimension of our commitment to nurturing well-rounded graduates who personify excellence in scholarship, leadership and citizenship.

In particular, service learning helps students develop a sense of citizenship by giving them an opportunity to not only become engaged with their surrounding community, but also consider how they can make a positive impact on improving that community or solving its problems.

Each year we receive hundreds of applications from all across the world from which some 45% of students are admitted to join our freshman class.  Successful applicants demonstrate a commitment to growth and learning, tackle tough challenges in and out of the classroom, and have a strong desire to contribute to the university’s global community.
