Finance, MBA

The Finance major provides students with the analytic and theoretical tools required to master practical issues in Finance, with applications to financial management in business firms, financial institutions, government, and not-for-profit entities. While some attention is given to the descriptive, institutional, and historical aspects of the field, primary emphasis is placed on the analytical foundations of the discipline, emphasizing theory and methods of analysis and making extensive use of relevant techniques of economic analysis, mathematics, and statistics. Graduates have begun their professional careers with positions in financial divisions of non-financial firms, investment banks, broker-dealers, asset management firms, and management consulting firms, as well as various departments of commercial banks and other financial intermediaries, not-for-profit entities, central banks, and international financial organizations.
