BiP empowers students to take their education into their own hands, and here's how...
BiP courses employ active learning and projects to construct an environment where students can take risks, learn from failure, ask candid questions, and build a rich portfolio of experiences and skills.
What makes a BiP course distinctive is the opportunity for a student to gain insights through company projects or scenarios. They learn how current tools and techniques are actually used and get feedback from professionals in the field.
