What will I learn?

The finance major provides the needed tools to work in investment management, corporate financial management, and banking. Position titles for finance majors include loan officers, mortgage review officers, stockbrokers, bond and security analysts, and ultimately, chief financial officers. Finance majors are increasingly taking and passing the Chartered Financial Analysts (CFA) examination. Thorough training in finance and related fields provides the practical and theoretical background needed to succeed in the fast-paced and fascinating world of domestic and international finance.

Whether students focus on either corporate finance or investment finance at the Lubar School, all students gain an understanding of business and economy, the functions of financial institutions and capital markets, and investment and borrowing instruments. Students learn how to use data and technology as tools to assist in making decisions by applying the understanding of financial data and analysis.
