Finance, the art and science of managing money, is also about making decisions that add value to corporations and individuals. No matter what industry you choose to work in, an understanding of finance is crucial for effective management.
The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance integrates economics, accounting, quantitative analysis, and financial management techniques to prepare you to work in a global business environment. Through courses of in-depth study, you will look at corporate financial management, investments, and financial institutions and markets, and gain a broad understanding of financial markets.
You may also choose to pursue a Finance minor with four required courses, which provides the skills you will need to evaluate and manage assets. By working with a program advisor, you can customize the Finance minor to focus on a particular area of interest.
Coursework is supported by training in the C.V. Starr Financial Markets Center, a simulated trading floor that provides you with the practice you need to enhance the theory you learn. Through internships, you will have opportunities to apply textbook concepts to real-world corporate issues.
