Globalization Program | New Specialization Tracks in 2021
With the unravelling of the Covid-19 global crisis, new and innovative ways of teaching and studying have been both devised and implemented. Amid this difficult situation, VIU once again proves its ambitious nature and its excellence-driven choices. In 2018 the Academic Council began a thorough review of the Globalization Program, taking into account both the students’ feedback and consultations with the member universities. The outcome is the introduction in 2021 of four new specialization tracks.
