What will I learn?

Banking and Finance related to the management of money and financial instruments of an economy, especially by governmental and corporate entities. Their activities range from managing the circulation of monies, the decision making of investment, the granting of credit, the acquisition of capital, the provision of banking facilities and the management of financial institutions and financial system.

The Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) Banking and Finance is developed to train students not only on the different operational aspects of a business entity but is also designed to equip students with specialized banking and finance knowledge and skills.

The combination of operational efficiency and expertise in banking and finance coupled with ability in the industrial relevant tool is a qualification that is highly sought after by many employers other than those in the banking and finance sector.
