The Financial and Business Economics program in the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies combines a rigorous quantitative and analytical approach with practical application and is specifically designed for students who are interested in understanding the workings of financial markets, such as the stock market and the financing of companies.

They gain insight into important subject areas of relevance in the financial sector, including budgeting, saving, investing, borrowing, lending, insuring, hedging, diversifying and asset management.
