  • Program Overview

    If you have a passion for numbers and analysis, an eye for detail and the bottom line, you'll find finance exciting and rewarding.

    Through the finance program, you'll learn to connect economic theories to real world applications. You will study areas of corporate and international finance, plus a wide range of subdisciplines such as investment, cost control, financial modeling, and risk management. You will learn how macroeconomic and market conditions guide business decision making, and you will become conversant in the language and tools that financial managers use.

    Coursework and internships will prepare you to launch a career in any facet of the financial sector, including banking, insurance and brokerage firms, or the corporate world, among others. Or you may pursue a graduate degree, including a valuable MBA. The choices are yours.
