Finance Major Guide

You’ll learn everything from corporate finance and investments to global markets. Analyze financial decisions through a social justice lens and explore their wider impact. Study with professors who have years of industry experience and connections and will walk you through case studies taken straight from the financial news.

Then, use what you’ve learned to make an impact at your internship. Finance majors make huge contributions at their internship sites — assisting with data mining and mapping, analyzing financial data, and putting complex financial concepts into practice. You’ll put your skills to work at an organization like Merrill Lynch, BBVA Compass, Chase, or NXP Semiconductors — to name a few. Graduate ready to hit the ground running as a financial analyst, personal financial advisor, insurance underwriter or other professional in a field that will only continue to grow.
