Financial Enterprise Systems (FES) is a challenging program involving the application of enterprise system concepts to analyze the business process needs of organizations, with emphasis on the finance industry. Today, the cross-functional nature of business processes requires a holistic view of the modern organization. The integration of finance, accounting and other important business functions is analyzed in this major. Demand for professionals knowledgeable in enterprise information systems, business technology and finance is expected to rise given the evolving nature of leading organizations worldwide.

Students majoring in FES receive a comprehensive education in integrative business processes, finance, information systems and technology. Several specialized courses tailored to the 21st-century organization distinguish this major from others. FES students are educated in financial management, markets and institutions, global finance, financial service operations, business continuity, information security, risk management, data mining, business intelligence and analytics. Students also gain expertise in financial and accounting business processes and technical knowledge of enterprise resource planning systems. FES graduates gain strong analytical, technical and managerial skills spanning business functional areas. Moreover, FES graduates obtain significant experience in oral and written communication.
