The Finance curriculum is structured to provide students with a rigorous education familiarizing them with the terminology, methods and application areas of economics, finance and financial technology, while providing an understanding of the financing needs of companies and the market mechanisms available to meet these needs. Graduates will be able to apply financial technologies for analysis, forecasting and management; assess the financial health of an organization; develop comprehensive plans that address financial management needs of an organization; and lead business and technology teams.
Prerequisite courses are intended for students who do not have training or prior coursework in accounting, finance and statistics. Students who have passed the CFA level 1 exam are exempt from all prerequisites; students who have not passed the exam will work with their advisor to determine which courses they may waive. These courses can be completed in a summer.
