The intrinsic challenges of globalized, dynamic financial markets require researchers with analytical skills, knowledge of economics and finance, and the capacity to model phenomena in the world of finance in order to make decisions that will enhance company, market and financial institution management, thus contributing to the sustainable development of regional, national and international economies. DCF is a research program with a scientific approach that seeks to prepare people with a solid grounding in financial theory, ethical values and critical thinking, trained in handling sophisticated financial analysis models and techniques to make the best financial decisions and solve sophisticated investment, financing, working capital management and risk management issues in enterprise, financial institutions, government agencies and other organizations. In this way, the institution delivers to the community scientists with a high sense of social and civic commitment and with ethical values, who carry out their research, teaching and professional work in favor of an objective diagnosis and the generation of proposals that will result in a more efficient, transparent and equitable performance by economic agents who participate in or supervise financial markets. As a result, this program is relevant regionally and nationally as can be seen in the national and international recognitions received by its graduates in relation to research and contributions to financial management and business and financial market risk management.
