Banking and Finance - Career Plan

Banking and Finance is the cornerstone of any business, institution, or organization. Orderly finances are crucial to the continuation and development of these entities, and without strong and well-trained staff overseeing these dealings, success will likely remain something out of reach. The Banking and Finance program at AUM is designed to teach students how to carry out this invaluable role with the utmost professionalism and expertise. Through the program, students will acquire an in-depth understanding of financial markets, learn how to build and manage financial plans, and develop the financial literacy they need to accurately interpret data and carry out statistical analysis. The program also focuses on developing the student’s mental database of software, and walks them through how to best utilize each to carry out the task at hand. The student will also commit to 160 hours of training at CFI and Hantec Markets, where they will have the opportunity to develop workmanship qualities that will make them stand out to future employers, such as communication skills, presentation, and numeracy. A degree in Banking and Finance from AUM opens the door to career opportunities in financial management, commercial and investment banking, insurance, real estate, financial planning, and government service. AUM has an almost perfect employment rate for Baking and Finance graduates, and because of our existing affiliation and partnership with CFI and Hantec Markets, graduates also have employment priority in their offices.

Because of their employment priority, many of our graduates go on to work in CFI and Hantec Markets after graduation. Others, however, branch out and find employment in other big-name companies, banks, and insurance companies. For example, a number of our Banking and Finance graduates have found themselves working in companies such as Al-Etihad Bank, Ernst and Young, and PricewaterhouseCoopers, some of the biggest names in the kingdom and in the region.
