Faculty of Finance is one of the 14 faculties of Kharazmi University. This faculty was established since 1988 in the "School of Economic Sciences" in an effort to train mid-level managers of the Ministry of Finance and its subsidiaries. The school included some interdisciplinary fields such as banking management, customer management, insurance management, taxation, public accounting and auditing. School of Economic Sciences was established based on the approval of the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology to admit students through an entrance exam. The school was founded subsequent to the "Financial School", which was established in 1936 for being a training center in the Ministry of Finance to conduct short term courses for these ministry staffs.
