About the Faculty
International Economic Faculty was created by the Financial University in 1999.

Presently we have about 400 students. We offer full-time Bachelor of Economics program (major Economics) on a fee-paid basis.

After graduation they work for, and some of them even head, state financial and credit bodies of different levels, tax inspections, bank branches. They also work as accountants and economists in different ministries, stockholding companies, other organizations and associations.
Teaching at the Faculty is in Russian and English. Our lectures are Russian and foreign professors with experience of practical work and teaching at leading universities in Russia and abroad.
The Faculty actively cooperates with employers and involves practitioners in lecturing.
Faculty is the leader in development and introduction to educational process of up-to-date educational methods and innovative educational technologies.
With regard to the Dual Degree project all syllabus courses in Economics were described in short, divided into three levels depending on complexity and aligned with the format of British and American universities.
This work is very important for future assessment of students’ transcripts that they get in foreign universities while taking their Bachelor course.
