The Defense and Seminar

In addition to the closed session for the oral Defense, each student must present a 45-60 minute seminar on his/her/their work, open to the scientific community. The GSBS will announce the seminar to the "public” at least four weeks prior to the seminar. If the seminar is presented before the oral defense, the examiners should be invited to the seminar, but should be asked to refrain from asking questions, except those that will lead to making the seminar more interactive with the rest of the audience. More intensive questions will be asked in the actual private defense.

It is the student’s responsibility to check with the particular MTA for the scheduling format of the Defense and Seminar.
