BBA in Finance
The Finance major consists of core classes, pre-business classes, required upper lever business courses, and specific Finance coursework. Please see the general degree plan for more detailed information on courses**
We encourage current students to meet with an academic advisor to select courses, inquire about tracks, receive support, and stay on track for graduation.
During a student’s academic career, Finance Majors can choose to pursue the Standard Track in Finance or to pursue one of the four Specialty Tracks in Finance.
The Standard Finance Track offers studies in the theory and application of activities related to the financing and investment decisions of individuals, corporations and non-profit entities. This includes the analysis of risk, investment cost and benefits, and securities management, as well as the study of financial institutions and their operations. Emphasis is given to understanding decision processes and financial markets and developing optimal decisions.
Students can also choose from four tracks, beyond the standard track, depending on their interest in Finance. Each track offers unique classes and requirements designed to better prepare students for specific industries, fields, and careers.
The Specialty Tracks currently offered to Finance Majors are:
- Global Energy Management (GEM)
- Risk Management & Insurance (RMI)
- Personal Financial Planning
- Commercial Banking Certificate
There is also a more comprehensive and technical Global Energy Management Professional Program offered as well.
