You'll develop your critical thinking and capacity for analysis, as well as a concrete knowledge of your field of study and greater understanding of how business and science interact.
The program structure requires the successful completion of 16 business subjects and 16 science subjects.
Our unique industry Professors of Practice work within this course to improve course curriculum, student learning experience, and engage with industry and business.
