The Bachelor of Economics and International Finance programme combines two closely related disciplines as happens to be the practice in many universities around the world. The diverse courses on offer ensure that students are well-grounded in aspects of the two disciplines. This prepares them for careers in research institutions, NGOs, public administration, business journalism, diplomacy, among other possible career opportunities. Graduates of the programme will also become professional economists, financiers or business people. In a liberalized and open global professional environment these specializations will continue to be in demand and thus enable graduates to market their skills freely across countries.
