Finance is the study of three interrelated areas:

  • Managerial finance, which deals with financial decisions within the firm.
  • Investments, which involve the decisions of individuals and institutions as they select assets for their investment portfolios.
  • Money and capital markets, which focus on how firms affect and are affected by the financial markets.

By studying finance, you will:

  • Learn the concepts, skills and techniques necessary for planning, raising funds, making investments and controlling costs.
  • Apply analytical skills to identify problems, propose and evaluate solutions, and ultimately make management decisions.
  • Be prepared for a professional career in the finance field in for-profit companies and non-profit organizations.
