Money and time—how we handle these expresses our core values. Beyond traditional finance curriculum, CBU students grapple with how to manage both money and time in a God-honoring way. CBU’s business faculty have years of experience, and aside from teaching students all about money, they help students improve their interpersonal communication skills and strengthen their value systems. Those skillsets are useful in any industry, all over the world. Students leave CBU able to develop ethical solutions for the financial challenges facing our society.

Why study the Finance program at California Baptist University ?

Each spring we endeavor to take students to some type of investing conference. Students also have the opportunity to participate in the CBU Investment Group, a student-managed investment fund, where students are challenged to create a portfolio that produces returns and matches CBU core values.
