Finance Major (FIN)
The BUA department strives to prepare students to take their places in society and to thrive in whatever roles they choose. The successful student who completes the finance major will:
- be able to analyze problems and formulate appropriate solutions using finance concepts and/or models;
- be able to communicate their interpretation and analysis of financial issues effectively;
- demonstrate broad knowledge of the basic content (vocabulary, concepts, tools, and central models) of finance;
- be able to use techniques and technological skills for practice and management of financial information.
The department is committed to providing a broadly oriented professional education to prepare students for careers in business, government, and not-for-profit organizations. The finance major contains a large number of required core courses that provide students with a firm foundation in the functional areas of business. In addition, the finance courses provide sound, specific preparation for students who seek careers in banking, financial management, or securities sales.
