For students, the fee will amount to $4,000 per year for regular courses and $10,000 per year for master's degree programs. We anticipate an initial intake of 200–250 students, with a projected annual growth rate of 15%-20%. As for private companies, the average cost of courses for their employees will range between $2,000 and $2,500.
