Disciplines Studied at SEBS


Economics is the largest discipline in SEBS, and forms the foundation for all studies in commerce. The discipline therefore services a large number of students and has a strong focus on teaching excellence. However, it is equally focused on conducting cutting-edge research and is closely aligned with several research entities in SEBS.


The Finance discipline teaches and conducts research in one of the most exciting and dynamic areas of business. Our team comprises a good mix of highly experienced and well-published academics, and young up-and-coming talent drawn from our pool of top graduates.
