Raising money. Investing money. Managing money.
Doing so effectively, wisely, and ethically.
That’s the world of finance.
No matter how small its footprint or gigantic its reach, every business relies on a financial model for viability.
Finance is the ideal field of study for students hoping to be financial managers, investment analysts, or financial services professionals. Here’s why such students come from all over the region to pursue studies in our Finance Program:
Students chose from three tracks that allow them to tailor their course work to their personal interests and ambitions.
Our faculty understand that financial modeling becomes real when students learn from real-world practitioners. That’s why professors supplement classroom instruction with guest lectures by business leaders. They show students how thriving businesses respond to market realities—how they plan for expansions, invest for longevity, raise capital for new ventures, and adapt to emerging trends.
Through co-ops and internships, students venture into local and regional businesses, seeing for themselves how a keen grasp of financial data bolsters business success. Without it, even the best ideas flounder and fail.
Our professors are impassioned about the field, and they strive to bring theoretical concepts to life through practical examples, case analyses, and current events. They stay abreast of emerging developments in the field to ensure that students are ready for the realities of modern markets.
Courses in such critical topics as Risk Management, International Finance, and Investment Analysis prepare students for high-level work upon graduation. Our students leave here ready to advance and prosper in their chosen pursuits.
