The Finance program of Southwest Minnesota State University is founded on a strong foundation of business core courses that are necessary for success in today’s competitive economic environment.


The Finance program of Southwest Minnesota State University allows business students to branch into one of two concentrations: a Financial Planning and Investments Concentration or a Corporate Finance Concentration. These interesting and valuable concentrations provide finance students with real options to focus their course-work towards the career opportunities that best meet their individual goals and interests. A minor in finance is also available for students from all types of disciplines.


Finance graduates can select from a diverse range of careers in the finance industry. Graduates within the Financial Planning and Investments track are well prepared to work as investment advisors for investment firms. Graduates are also well-prepared to pursue the Certified Financial Planning (C.F.P.) credential. Finance graduates with the Corporate Finance track will find many career opportunities with financial institutions and organizations both large and small. Students completing the finance degree also choose to start their own business; the finance curriculum provides an excellent basis for the financial aspect of entrepreneurship. Graduates of the finance degree program have also chosen to pursue graduate studies, particularly the Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. The Career Services Office at SMSU is an excellent resource for both professional guidance and job-related information. Recent employers of SMSU finance graduates include U.S. Bancorp, Merrill Lynch, Wells Fargo Bank, Bremer Bank, the State of Minnesota, the Schwan Food Company and the Office of the Comptroller of Currency (OCC).
