The Department of Banking and Financial Sciences is considered one of the departments with multiple links with the various departments of the College of Administration and Economics, as its courses include accounting sciences, economics, business administration, and statistics oriented towards banking directions locally and internationally.

In Al-Farahidi University, the department was opened in the academic year 2017-2018 and for the morning and evening studies.
