Finance

Here’s a good investment: Finance majors acquire in-demand skills, leading to interesting and profitable work.

As a finance major, you will learn to analyze complex financial data, make critical decisions and communicate effectively. Once you understand how accounting and financial markets operate, you can concentrate your studies on Capital Markets, Corporate Finance or Financial Planning. An accelerated program is available to select, high-performing students. If you’re accepted, you can earn a bachelor’s and master’s degree during the four-year program.
