Our Priority is Your Success We Aim for Excellence!

The Faculty of  Business and Management (FOBM) at the University of Balamand offers 3 undergraduate programs in the fields of Business (including four undergraduate concentrations: Banking and Finance, Accounting and Auditing,  Marketing, and Management), Economics, in addition to Tourism and Hotel Management. This entire section will be dedicated to Economics.


The Economics program is composed of 93 credits. It provides a firm basis in modern economic theory and develops the capacity for the interpretation and analysis of economic events, understanding both the national and global economy, for solving economic problems and for research on certain topics.

Economics is a very broad field that studies the market behavior of individuals, organizations and governments. Economics covers numerous topics such as trade, financial markets including currencies, labor, development, and politics among many others.

Students may be interested in one field of Economics more than another and that is why as an Economics student, you now have the choice of choosing a particular track after the first year of study. These tracks are included within the three-year program in which you can choose to go for a political science track, business track, finance track or a quantitative track.

Political Science track

This track is accustomed for students who have an interest in politics and international relations and wish to learn more about the interaction between the economy and politics.

Business track

This track is for students who are interested in economics from a business perspective, taking courses in marketing, management and organizational behavior.

Finance track

Students who are interested in financial economics are encouraged to choose this track as it combines these two interrelated disciplines.

Quantitative track

Students who excel at Mathematics and enjoy the quantitative aspect of Economics are encouraged to choose this track.
