A promising career awaits you in the money management and investment banking industries. But first you need to prepare with a finance degree.

What you'll study
Check out these courses: Principles of Investments, Banking and Financial Institutions, and Securities Analysis. These finance major essentials give you a strong foundation for understanding the complex and evolving world of finance.
