The Department of Finance offers two programs of study. Students utilize the resources available in the Lanterman Investment Center, a state-of-the-art “trading room” environment, to expand their knowledge of investment-related topics, including equities, fixed income instruments, financial derivatives, foreign exchange transactions, and many more. Investments majors are required to participate in the Student Managed Investment Fund, which currently has approximately $1.2 million in assets under management.

Mission and Vision
“The mission of the Department of Finance is to offer students an educational experience which provides a balanced mix of finance theory and practical application, at the undergraduate level. The program is expected to provide students with the knowledge of financial concepts and the analytical skills needed to pursue a variety of careers in corporate and government financial management, investments, portfolio analysis and management, financial analysis, financial planning, banking, real estate, risk management, and insurance. Students should develop the innovative skills necessary to successfully address a broad range of unanticipated challenges one could potentially encounter in a professional financial setting. Students will have the ability to effectively communicate their solutions in oral and visual presentations, as well as in written reports. The finance program currently offers a B.B.A. with a major in either 1) Managerial Finance or 2) Investments.”
