The Department of Finance was established in 2001 and received a license for a Bachelor Program in Finance and Credit. In 2006 the Master Program in Finance was opened as a logical continuation and deepening of professional education for the Bachelors.
The educational process at the Department is worked out in accordance with both national and international standards of education for specialists in finance. The main aim of our programs is to prepare future finance analytics and managers providing them with the most up-to-date professional knowledge and skills.
The professors of the Department are the best specialists with a great experience in both research and practical work in the sphere of finance. Most of them have studied and/or worked in the leading Western universities. Development and evolution of our courses is constant due to the fact that all the teaching staff are also active scholars and/or workers of the real-life financial sphere. This gives their students a perfect opportunity to be closely familiarized with the modern practical professional experience, and facilities their future career growth. Besides that the Department has a huge number of internal guest lectures from all over the World.
One of the key features of our educational programs is their practicality – the whole process of teaching and learning is based on the combination of theory, the real-life practice and scientific work. In 2002 the Laboratory of Financial and Economical Research was founded at the Department to support the students and PhD candidates in their scientific research projects. In addition to that the Department is organizing annual conferences for students, PhD candidates and young scientists since 2005.
