New MOS courses for 2019/20

Students enrolled in MOS will complete a foundational first-year of study that includes Business, Economics, and Mathematics prior to choosing the specific MOS module they wish to pursue. This base is important for a number of reasons; it helps students identify their strengths and interests and ensures they do not miss out on the career best suited to their vision of the future.
