Postgraduate Programs / Doctorate Programs





Our postgraduate programs, each with different program requirements, are based on and are fully compatible with the established European and American educational systems. The European guidelines for higher education are outlined in the Bologna agreements. Once a minimum number of credits has been earned, a request for graduation can be submitted. Postgraduate programs are advanced academic programs for college and university graduates, as well as for working professionals wishing to pursue a progressive career in the field of business and management. The school’s truly global community provides ample opportunities for students to pursue academic topics of interest and research with an emphasis on globalization, international business and higher education. Not all programs are offered at all campuses. Refer to the program schedule for further details.
