About

If The Economist and The Financial Times are must-reads for you, the Financial Economics program of Capital University is where you belong.

Overview

Investment theory, corporate finance, following the flow of money and anticipating its value — all while interest rates, shares and prices shift in the marketplace (ours and the world’s): This is the world of financial economics.

It’s both art and science. It’s not for the faint of heart. But it’s relevant, at times breathtaking, and many would argue it’s one of the most powerful forces in the world.

So if you have a gift for numbers, you’re enticed by testing the limits of theory, and you’re not afraid to make important decisions when variables can be predicted, but never known with complete certainty, then the Financial Economics program of Capital University will prepare you for a career you love.

What you'll learn

Under close guidance of professors who are Ph.D.s in the field, and of executive professors who have successful careers in corporate finance, investment, financial institutions or financial consulting, you’ll explore the fundamentals of economic and finance theory. You’ll understand macro and microeconomics, financial asset markets, corporate finance and financial institutions large and small that influence and play a critical role in shaping the real economy.

When you graduate, you’ll be comfortable applying economic theory and financial analysis to decision-making in business environments. Successful completion of the program prepares a student for a wide range of career opportunities in finance and the public sector.

Where you'll go

Graduates of our financial economics major are working in various industries, including include financial institutions like major banks, insurance companies and mutual funds; in corporate finance, brokerage house, financial consulting firms and government agencies. They also move on to do graduate work in finance and at top M.B.A. programs. 

Success in this program and in this career requires a passion and interest in the subject. You’ll need solid mathematics skills. You’ll need to be comfortable with economics and financial analysis skills, and you'll need a good grasp of related business areas. Here’s what some of our recent graduates are doing now:
