All students have the same curricula for the first two years, with a focus on strengthening language skills in the three languages (French, English and Arabic). Language skills are further enhanced by studying applied subjects, i.e., Economics, Law, Civilization and Information Technology, in one of the three languages.
In the third year, students choose their specialty: Business and International Commerce, studying specialized subjects in the three languages, or Translation as students master translation from and into the language pairs French/Arabic and English/Arab.
