Short description of the study programme

The goal of our program is to educate economic professionals having a global competitive edge in finance, in particular financial analysis and risk management. Our graduated students are capable of complex and independent financial thinking, managing and analyzing the financial processes of the economy both at macro and micro level. The main focus of our program is to provide high level of professional standards in investment analysis, portfolio management, corporate and bank treasury and risk management. For the above mentioned purposes, we have been striving to cover the requirements of the international Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and Financial Risk Manager (FRM) for the development of the course structure and curriculums. 
Our program is accredited by the Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP, the FRM certification provider) and by CFA Institute (the CFA certification provider) as well. As a consequence our students upon graduation will also have the knowledge to pass successfully CFA/FRM exams. This feature of our training is unique in the Hungarian higher education market, and it is also rare in an international setting.
