B.A. in Economics and Finance

The Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Finance at John Cabot University participates in the CFA® Institute University Affiliation Program (UAP). This status is granted to institutions that embed a significant portion of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge™ (CBOK) into their curriculum.

The major in Economics and Finance is designed to give students a solid base in the theoretical, quantitative, and analytical skills necessary to pursue further study and careers in the areas that require a solid background in economics and finance. Through appropriate choices of major electives, students can further develop their expertise in finance, economics, law, international affairs, marketing, and management. The major features a senior seminar that strengthens students’ ability to undertake research, work with empirical information, communicate their knowledge effectively via position and policy papers, and become aware of the CFA Institutes’ Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct. In addition, following the University’s liberal arts tradition, students undertake study on the history of economic thought or business ethics to develop an understanding of the power of ideas that shape economic opinions and policy.
