ALUMNI

“This is one of the great things about the IB: we learn how to learn and this makes IB graduates more skilful than others. When I was called to work as an intern, one of the first things my boss asked me was: “Tell me more about this IB and CAS.” He was extremely interested and I guess this was one of the reasons why I was picked.”
