The Department of Finance and Economics offers courses leading to the following degrees:
Bachelor of Business Administration in Economics
Economics studies the use of scarce resources to satisfy unlimited wants. The department’s introductory courses meet the need for basic economic and legal understanding in a complex modern society. Upper-division economics and business law courses build upon this foundation.
Bachelor of Science in Economics
The master of science in accounting and information technology (MSAIT) degree develops interdisciplinary competencies needed to respond to the evolving demands being placed on accountants and information technology professionals in modern organizations.
Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance
In today’s dynamic global business environment the role of the finance professional is increasingly important. Learning how to appropriately make investment and financing decisions is key to determining the monetary success of either the firm or the individual. Further, being able to recognize the inherent risk of these decisions and knowing how to adequately hedge against uncertainty is crucial in our highly integrated system of capital markets.
Master of Science in Quantitative Finance & Economics
The Master of Science in Quantitative Finance and Economics (MSQFE) equips students to succeed in an increasingly technical and data-driven job market. Students in the program will focus on the application of mathematics and statistics in the finance industry, while developing theoretical and quantitative skills in economic theory, financial analysis, and quantitative methods. Because economists research and analyze data using a wide range of technologies and software, the MS in quantitative finance and economics will also help you obtain skills in programming languages such as Python and MATLAB.
