Overview

Finance as a discipline also includes investment management for individuals and institutions, as well as the management of financial institutions such as banks and insurance companies. Since virtually all business decisions have a financial dimension, an understanding of the financial implications of a decision is crucial for effective management.

The goal of the finance concentration is to develop the analytical and managerial capabilities necessary for making sound financial decisions, either as a manager of an enterprise or as an individual managing his/her resources or the resources of others. The curriculum emphasizes sound fundamentals and state-of-the-art financial management techniques.

Finance appeals to students with an analytical and quantitative orientation. Finance majors are required to take courses in the areas of corporate financial management, investments and capital markets, and financial institutions. These courses integrate economics, accounting, computer software applications, mathematics, and statistics into a financial problem solving, decision analysis framework centered around the notion of value creation. Students may select elective courses dealing with short and long-term corporate financial management, securities analysis and investment management, real estate and insurance, and management of financial institutions. The globalization of business activities and availability of capital from sources around the world are a major focus in all advanced finance courses.
