B.S.B.A. Finance

The finance major equips the student with qualitative and quantitative skills needed to measure, analyze and evaluate the value and performance of financial assets in multiple asset classes like equity, fixed income and real estate. Students learn to apply this knowledge in real-world financial decision-making in the field of personal wealth management, corporate finance and investment research. Integrated into the finance major are several experiential learning opportunities through national certification programs, such as Bloomberg and Envestnet Institute, the CFA Program, and internships.  This integrated approach to the major will prepare the students for careers in finance and/or graduate study.
