Knowing how to work in a team turns us into
better professionals and therefore more susceptible of receiving the attention
of companies. In CEU Universities we do not limit to knowledge, our aim is that
our students develop skills, capacities and

their highest ambitions.

Team work is one of the soft skills most valued by recruiters so it is
