B. A. in Economics & Capital Market
Head of School: Dr. Miriam Kraus
Economies are comprised of diverse financial institutions which manage public funds. Among them are banks, investment houses (which handle pension and provident funds), insurance companies, and the stock exchange. Students earning their BA can join the workforce, filling fascinating and rewarding positions as economists, analysts, financial consultants, and managers. Studies equip students with comprehensive professional and current knowledge appropriate to employment in financial institutions and departments of companies. How financial institutions operate, what roles they play in the economy and what limitations are placed on them are examples of issues which are interesting to anyone wishing to develop a career in this field. Knowledge gained in this curriculum assists businesses and managers in taking effective informed decisions.
The syllabus combines economics with studies of the Capital Market. Students gain practical tools in the field of finance alongside an understanding of the world of economics: The diversity of capital market, public funding, micro, macro, financing and more.
