Undergraduate Degree Program
The finance concentration is concerned with financial management of business firms, the operation and functioning of financial institutions such as banks and insurance companies, and the investment of funds by institutional investors and individuals. Increasingly, there is also an international focus to the study of these activities as financial markets become global in scope.
The major in finance prepares students for careers in corporate finance, the securities industry, banking, financial planning or insurance/risk management. Business firms, financial institutions, and investment firms all utilize the talents of individuals with training in finance.
