Department of Banking

The Banking Department was established in 2014, within the framework of the Economics Department, based on the necessity and study of the labor market need for professional staff in this field. The financial and banking system of the country is one of the most important economic sectors of the country, which has made significant progress and strides in the last decade to make its role pivotal in the economy of the country. Banking in Afghanistan had not seen any significant expansion since its establishment in the year 1312, but in the last decade, it has grown substantially in terms of quality and quantity, relying on the country's economic system and adherence to new commercial and banking laws. To tackle this growth and to align banking activities in the country with the needs of the country and the Afghan community, the country faced a lack of professional staff. Therefore, in view of the growing need of the labor market for banking professionals in banking, the Economics Department has taken long-term steps in this field, eventually modifying the curriculum of the department in 2014. Subsequently, the department started its work within the framework of the Faculty of Economics.
