About the Concentration

The Finance Program (Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration) provides students with a comprehensive overview of corporate financial principles, a rigorous exposure to quantitative financial methods and techniques, and an introduction to capital theory.  In addition, students have the opportunity to learn how financial markets and institutions interact to allocate capital and manage business and personal financial risks.  Finance courses also teach students how financial managers participate in the global economy and use forecasting tools and techniques to plan their businesses more efficiently.  Students can participate in the co-op program which gives them the opportunity to work under the supervision of a financial professional and a faculty advisor. The Finance Program prepares students for careers in financial analysis, stock brokerage, money management, real estate analysis, banking and risk management, international finance, and provides them with a solid foundation to pursue a graduate degree in business.
