The innovation system that is designed by scholars from CCU, and its institute is built on what is called the ‘human organization’ where the power of interaction is the ultimate power to achieve objectives. Our classes are one best example for the equation of ‘diversity-innovation-wealth’, where modules have been designed to offer great flexibility and provide you with the option to break for few weeks when required.
