Finance is the branch of business concerned with management of money. The specific nature of the money management function depends to some extent on the type of organization. Based on similarity of the finance function, finance is generally classified into three areas: corporate finance, investments and securities, and financial institutions. Career opportunities may be available in each of these areas. A brief description of each area along with some courses applicable to each is provided below. A faculty advisor should be consulted before making final decisions relative to a degree program.
