The Department of Banking and Finance (DBF) at the University of Zurich is the only department in Switzerland that offers Bachelor's and Master's degree programs in academic education with a focus on Banking and Finance. The DBF is recognized as a pioneer in innovative teaching, thanks to its Teaching Center.
Zurich is not only the most important financial center in Switzerland, but also one of the most significant global financial centers. The location of the University of Zurich and the promising career prospects make the Bachelor's and Master's programs at the DBF highly attractive.
The DBF's excellent reputation and proximity to the financial center make it an ideal choice for students seeking a career in Banking and Finance.
Graduates with a Bachelor's degree are already qualified for direct entry into banks, consulting firms, insurance companies, finance departments of industrial companies, and the public sector.
However, more than half of the students pursue their studies further in the Master's programs. The Master's degree programs opens doors to responsible specialist and management positions in the banking, insurance, and consulting industries, as well as in the public sector. DBF graduates can pursue careers as investment bankers, financial analysts, risk managers, portfolio managers, financial consultants, and more.
Upon completing their Master's degree, graduates have the opportunity to engage in scientific research as part of the internationally renowned doctoral program.
