By educating the leaders of tomorrow to play a meaningful role in an ever more complex society, we believe ATB can contribute to the stimulation of global innovation and success.”-Harris Antoniou, CEO of ATB
ATB will support UWC students as of the class 2018. For ATB, supporting UWC is part of its objective of engaging with the local and global communities it operates in.
