The program, taught entirely in English, is spread over 4 sequential semesters, beginning in October 2015, ending in February 2017. Three semesters will be held in Israel, by COMAS faculty as well as Baruch faculty. One condensed summer semester (4 weeks) will be held on Baruch College’s Manhattan campus.
