Finance is the study of the ways money, markets, and people come together to create value. You’ll learn how banks, securities markets, and other financial institutions operate. You’ll study the influences of the national and international monetary pictures on financial management. You’ll learn how to make financing and organizational restructuring decisions in business firms.
The Finance Option provides students with opportunities in a variety of disciplines including commercial banking, insurance, corporate finance control, investment banking, money management, venture capital and risk management. The goal of the Finance Option is to expose students to all three major areas of finance: investments, corporate and financial institutions. This Option also helps students who plan to sit for the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Level I exam, the Certified Financial Manager (CFM) exam and the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) exam.
