All of the faculty members who teach in the Faculty of Economics’ international programs completed their Ph.D. in English language programs from highly ranked foreign universities.

 

OUR ALUMNI – GRADUATE PROGRAMS ABROAD:

Approximately 20% of our alumni pursue postgraduate degrees abroad. Our alumni have undertaken postgraduate studies in a variety of disciplines in highly regarded universities located in Europe (mostly the U.K. and Germany), the U.S.A., China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, and other countries.

 

FOREIGN VISITING FACULTY:   

Each semester, the Faculty of Economics invites several foreign faculty members to teach in our degree programs. Visiting scholars and lecturers are invited to lecture in the regularly scheduled classes and are funded (transportation, accommodations, and expense stipend) for short visits, typically 7 to 10 days. It is our goal to introduce our students to distinguished faculty, to highlight study opportunities abroad (as undergraduate exchange students or as postgraduate degree students), and to strengthen links with our partner universities.
