The Bachelor in Finance, acquiring operational expertise in the “corporate” and “market” professions

In addition to the fundamental courses, students are made aware of the specificities of certain sectors by experts. From the first year onwards, our courses are geared towards the chosen specialization, with an intensification in the second year to then access a third specialized year.

A diploma course in 1, 2 or 3 years to specialize in accounting and finance management.

Holders of a BAC can apply for the 1st year Bachelor’s degree, holders of a BAC+1 for the 2nd year Bachelor’s degree and those with a BAC+2 for the 3rd year Bachelor’s degree.

This Bachelor’s degree trains students for jobs in finance and accounting. These jobs require an ability to handle figures and also to use computers (dashboards, financial monitoring or technical analyses). However, commercial, relational and increasingly digital skills have become essential to evolve in complex and changing functions, particularly in the banking sector.

The objective of this training is to develop all the skills mentioned above, but also to understand the dynamics of employment in finance.

All our final year courses are specialized and professional, allowing students to be directly operational in a company at the end of their course.
