Finance involves the management and investment of money and other assets for a variety of businesses, governments, and individuals. Financial Analysis often requires us to estimate the value of an asset and the risk associated with that value. The finance curriculum offers opportunities to develop specialized knowledge and skills in one or more areas such as corporate finance, investment management, management of financial institutions, insurance and risk management, and real estate.
The role of people trained in finance is expanding rapidly within the business world. Changes on the financial scene, rising securities prices, fluctuating inflation and interest rates, and scarcity of capital have created an awareness that financial knowledge is essential to the effective management of business firms. Finance is the management and investment of money and other assets for business, financial institutions, nonprofit organizations, governments and individuals.
The Finance concentration draws on accounting principles, economic theory, and quantitative methods to direct the way money is managed, acquired and distributed. Students learn how economic systems operate and how money markets work within economic systems. They also learn to analyze economic trends and indications and to examine the movement and distribution of money.
Students may focus their studies in one or more of the following areas: Managerial Finance, Investments and Portfolio Analysis, Insurance and Risk Management, Real Estate and Derivatives. The Finance concentration prepares students for careers in financial management, security analysis, investment management, security or insurance brokerage, underwriting, credit management, and risk management with corporations, commerce banks, insurance companies and other financial institutions.
