Objectives of the Finance Program

The goal of the finance program is to prepare students for entry-level positions in all areas of finance. The program accomplishes this by offering a broad range of course work, by emphasizing and developing critical skills in students, and by providing students with real work experiences via internships. The finance program offers dual tracks: a General Finance track and an International Finance track. The General Finance track prepares students to excel in any business environment. The International Finance track, in addition, provides students with a thorough foundation in the international aspects of finance. Students who complete the General Finance track or the International Finance track will receive a BS degree in finance.
