success story

Like a modern Renaissance man, it is difficult to choose a domain where Michael Bloomberg has not tried his hand at. A banker, entrepreneur, philanthropist, author, billionaire, politician, activist, media mogul, avid pilot… and it is not a full list of accomplishments of just one single person.

His quick thinking and unbelievably rigorous work ethic have let him foresee how accurate early information from first hands can become a valuable asset in our information age and construct a whole eco-system around this idea.

Thanks to the Internet, students have been able to find a way to cope with the increasing price. A helpful factor is the emergence of websites like BooksRun and bookstores that give students the opportunity to rent textbooks for a given period of time.
