DETAILS OF SPECIALIZATIONS
Finance + Marketing

Our program offers you the opportunity to train yourselves from the best of both worlds. In finance, you will learn, for instance, about financial markets and services, portfolio management and banking. Then, you will draw from marketing specializations such as consumer behavior and sales and distribution to pitch these products to customers.
