According to Jânyo Diniz, CEO of Grupo Ser Educacional, "the beginning of the provision of distance learning services by UNG will be essential for the Company‘s growth in the 100% online distance learning segment, which will increase from the current nine UNINASSAU centers to 15 centers. As a result, the Company will increase its student base and dilute its cost structure as a whole, expanding its provision of high-quality education and a unique value proposition for students, with brands that are well-known in the job market at competitive prices

"The new centers will represent a substantial increase in UNG‘s competitive capacity and, consequently, that of Grupo Ser Educational, which will become even more renowned in its operating region, especially due to investments in reinforcing brand recognition since the beginning of 2015 through radio and television ads, including the revitalization of UNG‘s logo", added Diniz.
