Message from the Acting Dean
Ken Robinson, The Element
This quote by Ken Robinson summarizes the essential motivation powering MIUC’s educational mission. We do not know what the world will be like ten years from now, yet we need to educate people for it.
At MIUC we are pioneering a concept of education as tailored to the future - a future in which leadership will be constituted, in equal parts, by achievements innovation and problem solving creativity; by recognition of diversity and inspired self- confidence. Connecting knowledge, sharing intelligence.
The MIUC philosophy revolves around a core of individualised attention: our goal is to, maximise each and every student’s potential of- leading them towards a full realization of their talents, in such a way as to ensure that these be shared with the world; developing not only leaders but also individuals capable of reconciling their efforts between top professional careers and fulfilling lives. And why should they not?
Furthermore, we believe that education does not take place solely in class, but all around us both in and outside of the campus. We supply the education; Marbella supplies the rest. Our city forms not only the epicentre of exclusive economic, business and social pursuits, within which our students can implement their knowledge progressively as it is acquired, but also a privileged geographical location, where a Mediterranean environment and culture conspire to offer endless possibilities for personal growth and achievement. Mens sana in corpore sano.
We have infused this project with all of the expertise, care, enthusiasm, responsibility and hope we believe is needed to ensure the success of any new venture. While it is true that we cannot claim to have been established one hundred years ago, we should perhaps point out that one hundred years ago education had very little to do with what we are offering, with what it is needed. We are born of today, a today in which the future starts with each new dawn. We place our trust in the experience of our outstanding international faculty and the faith born of good ideas. Nothing more. Nothing less.
