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.
The Finance major curriculum has been approved by the CFA® Institute University Affiliate Program and covers a significant portion of the Candidate Body of Knowledge.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 10% annual growth in finance occupations through 2026. This increasing demand is being attributed to globalization and greater complexity of regulations and tax laws, in addition to a growing economy.
