Description

The BBA in Finance (FINA) program equips students with the quantitative and qualitative analytical skills needed to make effective financial decisions. 

The FINA curriculum helps students to become proficient in working with financial databases such as Bloomberg Professional Services, Thomson Reuters Eikon, and Morningstar DirectSM. FINA students acquire well-rounded business knowledge by taking courses in both finance and other business disciplines, including accounting, statistics, economics, information systems, operations management, marketing, and management. 

Important topics covered by the FINA curriculum include:

  • Corporate finance 
  • Derivative securities 
  • Financial accounting 
  • Financial markets and institutions 
  • International finance 
  • Investment analysis 
  • Portfolio management 

The program offers many elective courses to enable students to develop specialties in particular areas of finance. It is also flexible enough to accommodate students’ interest in other disciplines, which they can pursue by taking additional majors and minors.

Extended Major
FINA students may apply for the extended major in Artificial Intelligence or Digital Media and Creative Arts at the end of the 3rd term of study, if they satisfy the extended major requirement. Students completing the extended major will graduate with a title bearing both the traditional major subject they selected and the extended major. For more details, refer to “Business with an Extended Major in AI / DMCA.
