Finance

The finance curriculum is closely aligned with the accounting curriculum and is designed to allow students to experience both degree options before deciding which degree to focus on in year two of the program.

The Finance curriculum is designed to provide students with the knowledge and the skills necessary for employment and growth in the accounting and finance profession.

Students will be introduced to business and personal finance, business law, banking principles, and real estate theory. Business skills such as communication, personal skills, computer skills, analysis, critical-thinking, and ethics are emphasized.

Graduates should qualify for entry-level positions in finance such as financial clerks, bank tellers, credit managers, buyers and purchasing agents, real estate agents and brokers, and insurance associates. With experience and additional education graduates will enter the workforce prepared to advance in a variety of industries and professions.

Because the use of computers is integral to this curriculum, some courses are delivered via an online format.
