The field of finance encompasses many different areas including investments, financial institutions, corporate finance, and real estate.
The Business Administration - Finance Concentration from Western Washington University includes coursework in each of these areas as well as courses in options and futures, multi-national finance, and insurance. Managing finances requires you to answer intricate questions like: Can we afford to give employees a raise? Is it better to rent or buy office space? How should we finance our business? Typically, a student who pursues a concentration in Finance is good with math, money, inherently a problem solver, and is well organized.
