Outcomes and Career Outlook

A global economy, the emergence of big data and increasingly complex tax and regulatory environments means that occupations in the finance field will continue to grow. From investing, financial planning, banking, real estate, corporate finance, auditing, tax and advisory services, opportunities exist across the financial spectrum. Graduates may be employed in brokerage firms, credit agencies, banking institutions or professional services companies. They may also work for themselves as an accountant or personal financial advisor.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment in business and financial operations occupations will grow five percent from 2019 to 2029, faster than the average for all occupations. This, paired with salaries that are higher than the median average, makes a career in business finance very inviting and rewarding.
