The graduate program steps further and deeper, allowing students to choose their area of specialization from a wide range of relevant fields including natural and agricultural sciences, industrial technologies, and social sciences including economics, politics and other related disciplines. The course provides a unique opportunity to work with world experts at the cutting edge, on problems that global society needs to address right now for its future prosperity.
