When you major in finance, you’re investing in your future.
The Department of Finance offers you an education grounded in real-world knowledge, taught by accomplished faculty members. We emphasize learning through experience. In our innovative Accounting & Finance Lab, you explore practical applications of the ideas you study. Small classes allow you to build strong connections with your professors and classmates.
Our proximity to Charlotte, a hub for banking and finance, helps us stay tapped into regional and national trends. Students intern for industry leaders such as Merrill Lynch and Smith Barney. Faculty members work closely with students to develop and publish research. We also encourage students to present their work at conferences, where they can network with other industry professionals.
Our approach works: More than 75 percent of our alumni have job offers when they finish our program. Others proceed directly into graduate school.
