Financial managers provide the analysis and strategic thinking that help organizations achieve their long-term goals. The Finance Management curricula provides you with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of this discipline, as well as specialized career opportunities.
Using a combination of theory and applied learning, you will come to understand the relationship between capital providers – the households that invest through stocks, bonds and derivatives – and capital markets (stocks and bonds) and capital users (firms). Using real world tools, such as stock price databases and spreadsheet analysis, you will see the application of theory in practice. The curriculum includes a stock market class in which students manage a $100,000 investment portfolio on behalf of the college.
