In total, 259 Bachelor students completed their studies in the Bachelor en Droit, the Bachelor en Gestion, and the Bachelor en Sciences Économie et de Gestion this year.

During an evening ceremony, the FDEF’s 297 Master graduates received their diplomas in Accounting and Audit, Economics and Finance, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Banking and Finance, Wealth Management, and the Faculty’s six Master of Laws (LL.M.) specialisations.
