General information

Flexibility and comfort

We know that knowledge and skills are acquired most fruitfully in the right conditions, which is why our classes are held both remotely (saving time and energy) and stationary (allowing you to establish and maintain relationships, more fully exchange experiences).

The study lasts two semesters and includes 10 assemblies including: 5 online sessions and 5 on-site sessions in Warsaw.

Classes are conducted in Polish.


We have designed the program to familiarize the Audience with the broadest possible substantive scope of neuro-management taking into account the latest trends, results of brain research and specifics of the IT industry, as well as to allow practical practice of many of the topics covered.
