Abstract

Higher Education is considered the final step that enables young adults to become mature, well-trained and efficient employees, ready to embrace a working life. Throughout the world, new programs are constantly created in order to prepare young people, adapting new methodologies and techniques in alignment with the job demand offered by new emerging industries. This study is a guideline on how to initiate a new undergraduate program within high education institutions: it considers fundamental steps that assess and verify the need of such program, and whether it is viable. It then elucidates on all the necessary steps needed to develop a proper curriculum; finally, it enlists approval bodies in order to get the program up and running.
