We particularly value dedicated and talented individuals who come from diverse backgrounds and possess a global mindset.
Alongside your strong interpersonal skills and innovative outlook, you thrive under an intensive academic workload, considering it an opportunity to share new experiences and create unique approaches to problem-solving.
This process may vary depending on the program. Be sure to consult the Admissions area of your program of interest for more details on the admissions process. If you are considering a dual degree, keep in mind that students must be admitted to both programs.
