FINA

Short DescriptionUpdated

The BBA Finance (FINA) program aims to equip students with quantitative and qualitative analytical skills to make sound decisions in complex financial problems. Students will learn how to identify valuable opportunities, evaluate alternatives, assess and price risks, and manage money. Important topics covered in the rigorous curriculum include corporate finance, corporate valuation, investment analysis and portfolio management, derivative securities, financial markets and institutions, financial accounting, and international finance.

FINA curriculum helps students gain proficiency in working with industry-standard databases such as the Bloomberg Professional Services and Morningstar Direct. FINA students will acquire well-rounded business knowledge by taking courses in both finance and other business disciplines including accounting, business statistics, computer science, economics, information systems, marketing, operations management and organization behavior.

Our program offers many elective courses for students to develop specialties in specific areas of finance. The program is also flexible enough to accommodate students’ interest in choosing other disciplines for additional major and minor studies.

The ample enrichment opportunities such as Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), Finance Seminar Series, business competitions, company visits, personal development training, internships, and overseas exchange, complement FINA students' studies. The real world experience nurtures our students to be well-rounded finance professionals.

Our graduates typically pursue careers in investment banking, retail banking, fund management, trading, private equity, insurance, accountancy, legal and compliance, risk management and management consulting. They are also well prepared for professional qualifications such as CFA, CFP, FRM and PRM.
