The Department of Finance offers majors in both finance and real estate, as well as minors in finance, real estate, risk management and insurance, and business law. The finance discipline can be classified into three areas: corporate finance, investments, and finance markets and institutions. This business field is for students who want to understand the financial implications inherent in virtually any business decision. The real estate majors are exposed to both the theory and practice in real estate. Emphases are placed on investment analysis of real estate, financing issues of real estate, and real estate valuation.
We prepare our students in finance or real estate major for successful careers in corporate management, depository institutions, investment management, financial services, and real estate. The finance faculty have a diverse range of professional and research interests to enrich the student’s classroom experience. Please refer to individual faculty web links for specific information.
