The Finance Professional



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.  Finance graduates typically enter careers in business or government or attain graduate degrees in business or law.
