BBA with a major in finance
Students who complete the major in Finance are awarded a Bachelor of Business Administration degree (BBA). The BBA in Finance is structured to enable graduates to succeed in the competitive global and technology-driven business environment. The degree focuses on analytical, problems solving, modeling, ethics, team building, oral and written communications, flexibility, and diversity skills that are essential for careers in finance.
The degree prepares students for entry-level financial management and analyst careers in banking, insurance, mutual funds, finance departments of corporate firms, real estate, not-for-profit organizations, and government. Graduates are also prepared to pursue further study toward a graduate degree, such as an MBA. As with any professional program, the classroom component of the Finance degree is greatly enhanced by direct experience in a business financial environment. Accordingly, an internship program and field research opportunities expose students to the roles of finance: management of money and other capital assets in the accomplishment of an organization’s goals and objectives
