TESTIMONY

¬∑         PIEGL was one of my best decision I have ever made. 

¬∑         We are pioneers not followers, and we are creators not users.

¬∑         PIEGL is so dynamic and keep trying new things. 

¬∑         We have already made presentation on our own business plans, we have met many entrepreneurs and we had many opportunities to enjoy Chinese culture.

¬∑         PIEGL gave us an impression that they set students as a priority.

¬∑         It was a holistic approach to teach by the professor and I liked it. 

¬∑         A great mixture of indoor and outdoor learning.
