Bachelor of Science in Finance with Minor


Overview

The Finance programme provides the foundational knowledge and skills required of a qualified and competent finance professional. With an applied focus and an emphasis on data and technology, our students apply financial concepts to real-life cases and issues. This application-oriented approach gives students the contextual knowledge required to solve complex problems in the financial industry.

SUSS is a founding academic partner of the Global FinTech Institute (GFI) which develops and runs the Chartered FinTech Professional (CFtP) qualification to promote the field of FinTech and professionalism in the FinTech industry. Being aligned in our curricula, our students stand a chance to be exempted from one or more component examinations of the CFtP.
