Team AE

Our motivation

The passion for accounting and the interest in education is the common factor in this team. Each of the team members combines accounting knowledge with educational insights, but each of them starting from their own experience and background.

This combination is the starting point of each research and the driving force for 'UPE-proof' ( = Useful - Pleasant - Efficient) education in accounting.
