Finance is at the heart of what is transforming the world and finance professionals are in high demand. The salaries are excellent.

Undergraduate Finance students learn all aspects of business (from personnel to marketing) but hone their ability to be financial analysts for Main Street or Wall Street companies. Our sophomores write their first company financial report in their first finance course, drawing on the power and breadth of financial information in our finance technology lab. By the time they are seniors they can present a persuasive report from the perspective of a Chief Financial Officer. Theory. Facts. Analysis. Presentation.

Our program closely links to courses in accounting, economics, and marketing, and we encourage students to consider a double major. Our program also links to the Honors program at the University of New Haven and we encourage our students to pursue this program too. Our faculty are happy to work with students both in the honors courses and on their honors theses.

In addition to a strong academic program, students engage in and have access to:

Student-managed portfolios that are embedded into two of our finance courses. Our students pick stocks and mange money. Undergraduates have two funds. First, there is stock picking course for first- and second-year students. Second, there is a small endowment fund that our students manage. 

Competitions where our finance students compete against other students at other schools, in stock trading, investment reports, and analyst presentations. 

Finance data sets and tools similar to those used by financial firms. Competency with the tools, such as the Bloomberg, allows you to gain a good internship and a good job. (Link to the Tech center)
