"Our mission is to create an enriched educational experience to better prepare our students for the global marketplace by internationalizing both our curriculum and our student body.

A vital component of EpicQuest Education's growth plan is to build cross-border relationships and make strategic acquisitions to establish EpicQuest Education as a truly international service provider of higher learning. We believe that serving niche markets that meaningfully connects our academic programming to students who may not ordinarily pursue higher education, but that enables them to reach their aspirational goals, is a positive and effective business model, and one that will be successful in providing solid returns to all of our students and shareholders alike.
