The areas of the master’s professional activity are research organizations, consulting firms, secondary specialized and higher educational institutions, analytical departments of institutions and organizations.
The normative term of the master’s program (with full-time education) is 2 years. However, the student must first master the bachelor’s degree program (4 years) or specialist’s degree (5 years).

WHAT IS A MODULAR POINT-RATING SYSTEM (PRS)?
A modular point-rating system for evaluating the results of students’ educational achievements is a set of measures that ensure the level of quality in mastering educational programs by students.
The modular point-rating system will evaluate your progress in all subjects.
The mark is set according to the 100-point scale for certain types of educational work, discipline, modules.
Each discipline is divided into modules, which are the completion of students’ logical knowledge. Students’ level of knowledge is estimated by points.
The student receives a certain position in the ranking, which is the result of the arithmetic mean of the total points scored for the semester based on the points obtained in each of the disciplines.
The final grade in the subject is the sum of the received points and is set not only for the answer on the exam, but also based on the results of the current work during the semester.
This means that you have to start working from the first days of study – to score points from the beginning of each semester, otherwise the points lost at the beginning of the semester (for tests, homework, attending classes, etc.) then cannot be made up, and then it will not be possible to get a high evaluation.
