Message from the Department Chair
The AUAF Bachelor of Business Administration curriculum comprises a set of core courses plus the choice of four concentrations: (i) Accounting, (ii) Finance, (iii) Operations Management, and (iv) Marketing. Combined with the fluency in English, the language of global business, our business graduates are equipped not only to manage Afghan companies efficiently, but to export Afghan products to the world, and to import the latest technology from advanced countries.
The ultimate goal of the AUAF Business Department is to help build a prosperous and flourishing Afghanistan.
