Finance program emphasizes hands-on learning designed to help students understand the financial structure of various organizations, and the basis of financial decision-making.
Students in the B.S. in Finance program develop a broad base of knowledge in economics, mathematics, statistics, accounting and management. This knowledge is then applied for measuring, managing and extracting financial value for individuals and organizations.
Finance students develop a deep understanding of business principles such as raising capital, identifying investment opportunities and monitoring profitability.
Knowledgeable faculty with professional industry experience combined with small class sizes enable students to learn how financial value is created and to apply these ideas in real-world situations. Working with these faculty enables students to develop professional connections, move into rewarding and high-paying careers in the ever expanding financial industry. Finance students routinely use @Risk, and data through Factset Research Systems. These resources are available in the Financial Services Lab complex, housed in Bisgrove Hall, home of the Holzschuh College of Business Administration.
Students in this program learn through case studies, projects and internships with industry-leading companies. In addition, students routinely travel to major financial centers in New York City, Chicago and Toronto.
