A Finance Degree is Financial Security for Life
A finance career offers some of the most challenging and rewarding work available to individuals who excel in quantitative analysis and money management. Our finance program graduates go on to become stockbrokers, financial analysts, chief financial officers of corporations, and investment bankers.

I look forward to working in corporate finance and using the skills I have learned,” Kayla McCormick, finance, Class of 2009.
