Finance Major

Major Overview

Finance studentsPeople who work in finance affect almost every aspect of business — indeed, of modern life itself — because money still does make the world go round. Consider the impact these financial practitioners have made: Corporate finance officers help their companies raise capital that often finances new plants and new products, resulting in new jobs. Public finance professionals raise money to build roads, bridges, schools, and hospitals. Lending officers at banks, savings and loans, and credit unions help their customers finance homes or college education. Portfolio managers invest the retirement funds of millions of people.
