Finance Programs of Study
The School of Finance, Operations Management and International Business offers both a major and a minor in finance. In addition, students can concentrate in one of three areas: corporate finance, investments and portfolio management, or financial institutions. The finance curriculum emphasizes the fundamental aspects of finance, economics, quantitative methods, and information technology that provide the technical skills necessary for our graduates to be successful in an increasingly complex financial world. To expand their education even further, students may declare a second major or a minor in an area of business administration or any other academic program area on campus. Finance students with an interest in international business may complement their studies with an international business minor, the University’s Summer Study Abroad Program, or a semester-long or year-long study abroad or exchange program. The School is an active participant in international exchange programs including the University of Siegen and the University of Zurich.
