CONCENTRATION FINANCE (DR. EVGENI ZOGRAFSKI DEPARTMENT)

In addition, students will recognize and analyze financial data and financial markets and institutions and will be able to make basic investment and financial decisions.

OUR TEACHING PHILOSOPHY –  WHAT DO WE TEACH AND HOW DO WE TEACH

At undergraduate level, we believe that the instructor’s responsibilities include:

  • Asking the right questions
  • Leading the class discussions
  • Helping the students find their own solution to the problems raised.

TEACHING METHOD

  • We do ask the “WHAT” and “WHY” questions. But we also teach the “HOW”!
  • Apart from teaching theory and facts, our primary goal is applying the knowledge and gaining practical skills.
  • We employ leading-edge teaching techniques, such as: case studies, role plays, problem solving, individual and team projects, and simulations.

By doing this, we have learned from the best – Harvard Business School. So far, we have 16 faculty members holding a teaching certificate according to the Participant-Centered Learning methods.

During the lectures, we use case studies designed by some of the best business schools in the world, as Harvard Business School and Darden School of Business.
