Finance Concentration

Business professionals adept at applying complex economic and accounting concepts in decision-making are in great demand. Managerial decisions in organizations, as well as timely analyses of investment alternatives, require input from financially educated professionals. The finance concentration prepares managers for successful interaction in either the managerial or investment function. Topics in many of the finance courses assist students in preparation for the CFA exam. Students also may elect to earn Bloomberg™ certification and receive on-campus Bloomberg training.
