Accessibility to preeminent finance faculty and cutting-edge academic research are key ingredients to providing undergraduate and graduate students with the tools and methods necessary to expand their understanding of finance. Rigorous training at all academic levels prepares students for the quantitative and analytical challenges in both the business and academic fields.

Concentrations and degrees for qualified students include:

  • Undergraduate Concentration in Finance
  • Master of Science in Finance
  • Ph.D. Program in Finance

Our nationally recognized Finance Department, cited by U.S. News & World Report as among the top 15 in the country, hosts the Finance Department Seminar Series featuring top scholars from around the world addressing current research and trends in the field. These weekly seminars provide an engaging forum for students, faculty, and practitioners alike. In addition, informal brown bag lunches are hosted throughout the year by the Department.

Members of the Finance Department consistently facilitate meaningful interaction between students and professionals through an alumni advisement system which supplements faculty advisement in the areas of financial institutions, manufacturing firms, service firms, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies.
