The program is of an interdisciplinary nature drawing, according to the major, on appropriate courses in the humanities; social sciences; food, physical and biological sciences. It is designed to give students a broad exposure to the basic disciplines (e.g. economics, psychology or sociology) and a sound professional management education with a focus on specific industry sectors or management functions which prepare the graduates to assume positions of responsibility in particular areas of management and business. The early semesters are devoted to instruction in the basic disciplines while the later semesters are devoted to more professional studies. Students who complete these majors may be given credit on a subject for subject basis for courses in the first year of an M.B.A. program.
