The Faculty’s financial identity is clearly evident in the nature and blend of its vocational and academic programmes which cater for a select range of competencies required in the areas of accountancy, economics and econometrics, and financial practice

The Faculty is the one of the largest faculties at the institution, hosting approximately 20% of enrolled students. The programmes offered by the Faculty are organised within four departments, each with a unique focus.​
