Why study?

  • Money makes the world go round

    Indeed, but not in a bad way. Despite all controversy, the finance industry is one of the elite and at the same time criticism-exposed professions. In order to succeed one needs the same amount of knowledge and experience.

    If you decide to study Banking, Insurance and Financial Management, you are provided with an opportunity to become part of a business and financial elite, to manage cash and capital flows, to create loans and other financial products, to manage corporate and personal finance, to take part in domestic and international financial markets and to develop financial institutions and markets!
