Finance

Finance drives most business decisions. Majors learn how to provide expert investment advice to clients, perform detailed financial analysis, structure business deals and manage portfolios. Finance classes address such issues as how repeated boom-and-bust cycles occur, what their implications are for financial managers, and how financial markets affect every other sector of the economy.
