To cater to the educational needs of working adults, FEP established Executive Program Unit (UPE) in 1997 by offering part time programs to candidates with working experiences in public or private sectors. This program has thus expanded through collaboration with Malaysian Airlines (MAS) Academy in the year 2000.

Within the same year, FEP established External Program Unit and Distance Learning Unit in 2001.

FEP offers three bachelor level programs: Bachelor of Accounting, Bachelor of Economics and Bachelor of Business Administration. At the graduate level, FEP offers Masters of Economics, Masters of Science and PhD in Economics.
