A finance emphasis provides students with the essential knowledge about corporate finance and financial markets necessary for obtaining and succeeding in careers in:
- Corporate finance
- Security analysis and portfolio management
- Investment and commercial banking
- Risk management
Because a solid foundation in finance contributes to effective decision-making across the major business functions, it is appropriate for students who aspire to have positions in, among other areas, general management, product/brand management, supply chain management, information technology management, management consulting, and entrepreneurship.
