This was the first face-to-face oral defense open to all graduates in a long time in which 63 teachers of SOB were divided into 27 groups to serve as the judges.
During the defense, all graduates were expected to explain their thesis statement, paper framework, research approach, innovative points, etc. Then teachers of defense group carefully commented on and asked questions about the papers while strictly assessing the quality of the papers.
