Finance Major

The finance major is designed for students who are interested in a career in one of the three divisions of finance: corporate finance, investments, and financial institutions.  Corporate finance involves decision making by financial managers at corporations.  Investments deals with security analysis and building well-diversified portfolios.  The study of financial institutions includes preparation for careers with institutions such as investment banks, commercial banks, savings & loans, credit unions, and life insurance companies.

Courses taken on a Credit/No Credit Basis are not accepted on this major.
