BBA Finance

Dear Finance Major:

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule for the FINANCE major. The milestones listed below each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. Two sample schedules are provided as general guideline to help you build a full schedule each term (one includes summer semester matriculation and one does not).  Make sure that you get advised every semester to create an optimal schedule and on-time graduation.

Finance focuses on the ways individuals, businesses, and governments raise and allocate monetary resources among various investment opportunities. Minors in Advertising and Promotions, Business Analytics, Business Law, Economics, Entrepreneurship, Healthcare Administration, Human Resources, Operations Management, Professional Sales, and Supply Chain Management allow majors to gain in-depth knowledge of these areas. Students who major in finance develop the financial decision-making skills needed for valuing securities and derivatives, managing portfolios, assessing and managing risk, understanding financial market behavior, and understanding financial institution operations.

Students who pursue a B.B.A degree in Finance at the Langdale College of Business Administration receive a rigorous education that prepares them for finance careers in diverse areas ranging from small businesses to large corporations as well as in banks, insurers, and securities businesses. The most popular jobs for finance majors are financial analyst, investment banker, financial advisor, financial manager, insurance brokers and agents, and risk analyst, etc.
