Finance

Finance is the management, creation, and study of money and investments

Finance majors learn how individuals and organizations raise money and capital, and how to effectively allocate resources among various investment opportunities. The curriculum facilitates financial decision-making skills. 

Your degree in Finance will expose you to micro and macroeconomics while honing your quantitative and qualitative skills. You'll gain a solid foundation in corporate finance and the analytical tools commonly used in financial services, investment analysis, and research.
