The program­me is offered with the support of UPC. Faculty in the programme comes from both institutions, though more than 80 % of the Professors have an inter­national background. Classes in Kinshasa take place either at the campus of UPC or in the Pullman Hotel, both centrally loca­ted in DRCs capital.
