Bachelor of Economics with Bachelor of Finance and Banking

Why combine Finance and Banking with Economics?  

Banking and finance professionals manage money and financial assets to help individuals and organisations reach their goals. Economists look at society’s big picture, and give expert advice on policy design and business strategy.

Combined, the two provide an all-inclusive view of markets, the economy and business. They come together in a wide range of rewarding and well-paid careers which you’ll be uniquely placed to pursue.

What will you do?

  • Understand wealth management and financial modelling in depth.
  • Study international trade, banking and financial markets.
  • Explore economic theories and their practical applications at all levels.
  • Build skills in mathematics, statistics and data analysis.
  • Master creative problem-solving, decision-making and communication.

This is a 4-year double, not combined degree. You’ll graduate with two separate parchments, a greater scope of career prospects and a competitive edge in the job market.
