What is Finance?

Finance Major students will study the financial and capital markets as well as working with global banks, multinational corporations or the stock exchange in a career as rewarding as it is challenging. Finance can be a high risk, high reward industry requiring decisive strategy in the face of uncertainty. Determining the value of assets, and making investment and corporate financing decisions, requires sound and confident risk-hedging strategies.
