Part-time & Graduate Enrollment Services
The finance major prepares students for management positions in financial, commercial, industrial, and governmental organizations. Students are taught the principles of financial decision making and build an understanding of the economic, legal, and financial environment in which they will operate. Career options exist in government, industry, service, and not-for-profit organizations.
Finance majors are required to complete six months of cooperative education during the last two years of study. Co-op is the best way for students to immerse themselves in the real world and apply what they have learned in the classroom to real-world situations.
