The department of banking and finance is part of the Faculty of Commerce and Accountancy (now Chulalongkorn Business School), which was established in 1939 to produce the graduates with specialization in banking and finance for the fast-growing economy in Thailand. Since then the Department has provided the academic services in bachelor's degree, master’s degree and doctoral degree for various academic programs for the Chulalongkorn Business School.
The Department of Banking and Finance emphasizes on the importance of conducting academic research together with providing academic services. In the highly competitive and fast moving business world today, new development and innovations are constantly created. Research in finance is one of the key components to helping the faculties understand and apply them into practice properly. Knowledge gained from research can be taught and disseminated to students and society.
Moreover, the Department has established a network among business schools overseas, business partners, and other government organizations in order to enhance the connections and exchange learning experience among our faculties and students. The network with other business schools are in the form of faculty or students exchange program or visiting faculties from overseas which not only enhance the knowledge sharing but also improve the international environment in the school.
The Department made a huge investment in creating the Financial Laboratory, which offers state-of-the-art learning facilities with the trading room ambiance in the financial markets. The Financial Lab is equipped with leading financial software and databases, commonly used by global financial firms in the industry, which offer a unique learning opportunity for students to have access to the data and financial news around the world. The Department of Banking and Finance is proud to be the first in Thailand and Asia Pacific to have established such a facility for classroom teaching in a university.
