MBA in Finance
Economics has many substantive areas of knowledge where there is agreement but also contains areas of controversy. That's inescapable.
Ben Bernanke, September 23, 2008
The first decade of the 21st century witnessed the nation’s second Great Recession. Financial institutions of all types, including banks, brokerage firms and insurance companies, share the burden for creating perilous global financial conditions that are still being rectified today.
Global businesses need well prepared financial professionals to continue rebuilding the world’s financial institutions through sound financial practices associated with strong, ethics-based decision making.
Businesses worldwide need well educated financial professionals possessing a broad and integrated understanding of finance, investments, and entrepreneurship framed in quantitative reasoning, economic analysis, and statistics.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects 9 percent job growth for financial managers through 2020 and notes that services provided by financial managers, such as planning, directing, and coordinating investments, will continue to be in demand as the economy grows.
The School of Business and Management offers an MBA with an area of study in Finance that equips students with the core finance and business management skills necessary to pursue careers in domestic and international banking, broker-dealer firms and management consulting.
