Finance Major

The Finance major teaches managers how to make the best long-term decisions for their organizations. Students learn how to plan, manage, analyze, interpret and present information with the goal of maximizing the wealth of business owners. A finance major should be good with numbers, a team player, a creative problem solver and an effective communicator.
