Each year the Program accepts up to thirty (30) Graduate Students holding undergraduate degrees in engineering, science or economics from recognized universities and colleges, as described in detail in the governmental decision approving the program. For the acquisition of the Graduate Specialization Degree the graduate students must complete four intensive background courses, seven core courses and four courses in one of the following three specialty areas
