BBA in Finance
Our objective is to design courses and programs to provide students with the knowledge, technical skills, and market relevance to allow our students to succeed in the lucrative but challenging world of finance. We offer excellent and innovative programs.
The standard Finance Track offers studies in the theory and application of activities related to the financing and investment decisions of individuals, corporations and non-profit entities. This includes the analysis of risk, investment cost and benefits, and securities management, as well as the study of financial institutions and their operations. Emphasis is given to understanding decision processes and financial markets and developing optimal decisions.
Students can also choose from three tracks, beyond the standard track, depending on their interest in Finance. Each track offers unique classes and specific requirements.
- Global Energy Management (GEM)
- Risk Management & Insurance (RMI)
- Financial Planning track and minor
- Commercial Banking Certificate
There is also a more comprehensive Global Energy Management Professional Program offered.
