Business finance is concerned with the principles of capital and investment in a commercial setting. If you have an interest in the broad spectrum of financial disciplines including economics, statistics and accounting, the Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) in Finance will provide you with the specialised skills to help you succeed in a growing international business sector. At UOWD, the BCom in Finance will help you gain an in-depth understanding of the role of financial management in business, including how to solve financial problems and identify, justify and communicate financial advice, based on a range of social, economic and regulatory factors. You will also acquire knowledge about the role of financial institutions, particularly the operation of securities markets, develop an understanding of how companies raise capital and choose between investment options and understand how financial institutions operate in the current business environment.
The UAE’s rapid growth as a major international business hub means there are a wealth of employment possibilities in the financial services sector.
