Department of Finance

The Department of Finance is dedicated to mentoring students interested in earning a Bachelor of Business Administration in either Finance or Economics. As finance majors, students focus predominantly on topics concerning business finance, investments and corporate financial management to prepare for future careers in finance or even owning their own businesses. As economics majors, students develop a thorough understanding of both microeconomics and macroeconomics with a heavy emphasis on financial processes and relations.

The department emphasizes real-world, experiential education through specialized programs.

  • Roland George Investments Program - a $6 million student-managed equity and fixed income portfolio.
  • Certified Financial Planning Program - a curriculum specifically designed to prepare students to sit for the CFP® certification exam to earn this prestigious designation.
  • Economics Major - provides a thorough understanding of economics and business behavior, prepares students for careers in business and government, and sets a foundation for graduate and professional studies.
