Finance & Business Economics

In studying towards the B.S. in Business Administration (Finance specialization), the curriculum is divided into two parts: a common core of business courses and a set of elective courses in specialized areas of finance. The core is designed to provide a broad foundation in the functional areas of business. These courses embody both the disciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives within each area, while providing the cognitive and analytical competencies that will be utilized in the specialized areas of the curriculum.

The Finance curriculum provides specializations in Financial Analysis and in Financial Planning. The specialization level courses apply economic analysis and quantitative techniques to the following various financial problems and issues encountered in all types of business firms and non-business organizations: optimal cash management; analyzing and choosing among alternative investment projects; evaluation of various portfolio strategies and policies; corporate financial analysis; and money and capital markets.
