A new generation of concise textbooks for a new generation of smart learners.


A new approach to learning

Higher education is changing. New knowledge accumulates in ever shorter cycles. Digitization is becoming ubiquitous. And long, exhaustive textbooks are becoming outdated.

Getting a quick overview of the main principles of a subject first, and then adding up-to-date knowledge – that´s the approach of smart learners.

Our concise and practical textbooks enable smart learners to quickly understand the “big picture”  and build a solid foundation for developing their management and leadership skills.
