The School of Economics and Finance of EAFIT University includes the Departments of Economics and Finance. They serve the undergraduate program in Economics, Specializations in Finance and Management of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and Masters programs in Economics, Finance, and Financial Administration.
The School seeks to offer graduate and post grad programs that are recognized nationally and internationally for the academic excellence of their professors and researchers. It intends to participate actively in governmental policy-making and in public discussions within Colombia related to economic and financial topics.
As affirmed by the Dean of the School of Finance and Economics, Doctor Juan Felipe Mejía, economics and finance have an academic connection because while economics is a social science that studies production, distribution and the consumption of goods and services, finance is the branch of economics that studies monetary management, credit, banking, and investment. The two subjects are connected from both an academic and a thematic point of view. As examples, there are many similarities in the quantitative methods utilized, in the subjects analyzed, in the common lines of research, and additionally, in the literature, where there are international publications (journals) of Economics and Finance.
