“Our BA in Finance and Investment provides superlative preparation for a career in any area of finance as well as for those who wish to pursue graduate studies. The programme provides a keen mix of theory and the practical, which provides a sold foundation for any career path. While finance requires attention to technical detail, the scope for creative thinking is encouraged. Our graduates have gone on to successful careers in areas such as investment banking, consultancy, private equity, financial information provision, and financial services. The programme is taught by an engaging faculty with a wide range of academic and professional experience, who are used to working with people from all over the world.”

What our students say

“Through my time at ż studying finance and investment I’ve found the classes very engaging with professors that have real world experience with the world of finance. Additionally, after doing numerous internships within the finance world, I’ve found that topics covered within classes at ż are very applicable to real world work places such as banks and other financial institutions.”

“I’m currently pursuing my Masters in Financial Analysis at the London Business School, which is one of the top business schools in the world.

At ż I was able to learn about global financial theory while literally working with people from all over the world. I was able to apply my interests in finance in multiple different industries, because as a liberal arts school, ż had many opportunities for collaborating with people in completely different programs while still applying my knowledge. And mostly importantly, the connection I was able to create with my professors far surpassed all of my expectations. With smaller class sizes, I was able to work 1-on-1 with my professors which was crucial to my development and my overall success in the program.”

To this day, I maintain contact with most of my professors, and this is not something I think I will be able to replicate elsewhere. ż has always been able to maintain an excellent balance of being a small school while creating a global experience, and this was exactly what I needed while pursuing my undergraduate in Finance.

“Finance and Investment can seem like a tough subject to study at university, but I quickly learned this was not the case at ż. The small class sizes allowed my professors to interact with us at a more personal level and to identify our strengths and weaknesses, with classes always being interactive and fun to attend!  

My courses became more and more interesting as years went by: from liberal arts courses such as Scientific Reasoning and Creative Writing in the first year, which eased our way into university, to more specific courses like Global Investor and Quantitative Models in Finance towards the end, which showed us a real introduction to the financial world.

Now that I have graduated, I have noticed that employers are especially interested by the wide array of subjects I have taken at ż, which focused both on the theory and the practice, as well as by the dual UK/US degree and the study abroad opportunities this has brought. The diversity at ż is something I have also seen to be appreciated by employers in the interviews, as nowadays, a multicultural environment is an aspect companies put a lot of importance on.”

“ż’s culture has given me access to a great network of unique individuals. The finance courses at the business school developed a solid foundations which has propelled my career.”

“My experience at ż is one that I will remember and treasure. As I reach the end of my studies in Finance and Investment I realise how much I have been able to learn, directly and indirectly linked to my major. ż has given me the opportunity to expand my knowledge and I am excited to put it into practice in my career. The best part of all is our small community that allows us to create strong bonds with our professors which has been beneficial especially during the COVID pandemic. Although small, our community is diversified with students from all over the world. This gave me the chance to learn different cultures and gain an open mind in the world of today.”
