Is getting a finance degree worth it?
With high job growth, a great salary and stability, a career in finance can put you on the fast track to success.
In the finance major, you'll lay the groundwork for a career in the corporate and financial service industry. In your classes, you'll have the rare opportunity to get hands-on experience actively managing a portion of the University's endowment fund. Some of your courses will include Investments, Financial Statement Analysis, Money and Banking, Introduction to Derivatives and International Finance.
There's more good news. Several of your required courses are designed to help prepare you to take the first part of the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exam. The CFA consists of three parts and is considered to be highly prestigious in the investment management profession.
