Finance Concentration

Every business depends on sound financial management. Build the foundational skill set needed for a successful career.  

Is your future in financial management, government finance, insurance or real estate? Do you aspire to be CFO or CEO, and manage your business to success? Are you ready to manage money for personal investors or large institutions? Do you have the aptitude and fortitude to succeed in high-stakes equity and venture capital?

Be Career Ready

  • Learn the principles of investment decision-making, valuation and trading, and immediately put them into action
  • Explore where finance meets law in electives like financial policy and strategy, corporate governance, and mergers and acquisitions
  • Acquire competencies in risk diversification and portfolio theory, and programming complex models for decision-making
  • Prepare for a quantitative finance career with electives in equity, bond and derivative markets in a curriculum built on advanced mathematics, finance and statistics
  • Gain a comprehensive view of global economics and international finance for a career that can cross borders

Customize your MBA finance interest and increase your marketability by choosing a secondary concentration like analytics or management consulting. Pair finance with your engineering, law or health care dual degree to be better equipped in the business side of your industry.
