The biggest challenge for Higher Education is to follow the rapid pace of change in the labor market and society, shaped, more than ever, by technology. We live and exercise our profession in an increasingly competitive scenario, which sought, second after second, overcome distance, redeem the time and perform multiple tasks at once.
Who can perform this task? It is the professional with the best and most current training. If you are looking to develop this professional profile, their place is in UniFil.
There are several reasons that allow me to make this claim. Starting with the faculty, composed mostly by teachers, teachers and doctors who also work in the labor market. It's academic knowledge combined with practice of the profession since the first day of class.
UNIFIL also provides complete infrastructure for you to study with safety, comfort and technology. Classrooms, laboratories, practical, common areas and services for students receive constant investment and improvement. We also provide, through outreach projects and partnerships with numerous companies, organizations, institutions and opportunities for practical training and referral to job openings.
However, the most important is who endorses the outcome of this formula for success: are our students, who have passed through the halls of UniFil and professionals today are deployed in various parts of Brazil, in senior positions in government agencies, large companies and as own their own businesses.
To support our mission of providing trained, serve actively in the area of social responsibility and to create knowledge, we have hundreds of people, including faculty and staff. There are several teams working to provide our students with quality education and training, always attuned to the needs and market trends. Here, the knowledge goes with you for life. Be different.
