About the program

The B.A. in Business Administration: Accounting and Finance is a dually accredited program. You will get both American and European BA degree for a single price. The program is delivered by an international faculty with top qualifications and experience in the business world. We commit ourselves to a personalized education model: in Spring 2020, the average class size in business undergraduate studies was 18 students! 

What I enjoy most about AAU is its diverse and engaging environment. The smaller class sizes allowed me to make meaningful connections with faculty members and students, and facilitated networking, which is extremely important in the business world, and has enabled me to seek out the right opportunities.

Kristian Pankulych, Business Administration, Student

In this concentration, students familiarize themselves with the core aspects of accounting and finance. The courses are designed to gradually deepen students’ knowledge of accounting, reporting, banking, capital markets and portfolio management. Given the rising number and volume of fraud and unfair practices in these areas, the module also focuses heavily on business ethics and ethics of capital markets. As a part of the concentration, students will also get real-life experience of working in a large corporation or an auditing company.

After completion of these modules, students will be able to successfully work in the above-stated fields and will have the ability to record, classify, analyze, summarize, interpret, and communicate financial information relevant to a business and its surroundings.

Additional information

See what our students have to say

We do almost all of our projects in small international teams, and we work together like we would in a business company and synergize our different ideas. There's flexibilities to meet with teachers outside of class, and ask them questions, not just specifically things we learn in the class.

AAU makes networking incredibly easy to do. I was able to participate in various events that don't necessarily connect to my coursework like conferences, literature festivals, debates, lectures, etc. When I was President of the Diplomatic Club, AAU helped me get in touch with event-organizers, which, for example, allowed us to host an event during the Festival of Democracy organized by the famous Forum 2000 conference.
