WUP 6/5/2014 - The Laptop versus Longhand - Students taking notes on their laptops have become common - even at Wittenborg University!

WUP 10/8/2013 The race is on between countries who can provide international education to the world’s emerging economies. According to a new report by the British ministry of education, “huge opportunities” exist for countries that can supply in the growing need for international education coming from rising economic powers such as India, China, Brazil, Russia, Saudi-Arabia, Mexico and Indonesia.
