The Department of Finance offers a major in finance, as well as a minor in finance. The finance discipline can be classified into three areas: corporate finance, investments, and finance markets and institutions. Students are exposed to both the theory and practical applications as relates to these areas of finance. Students are taught to focus on the key elements of complex financial issues and to provide solutions based on theory, knowledge, analysis and logic. This business field is for students who want to understand the financial implications inherent in virtually any business decision.
We prepare our students in finance for successful careers in corporate management, depository institutions, investment management, and financial services. The finance faculty members 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.
