Financial Management

Today’s financial landscape is ever-evolving. It’s global, it’s political, and it’s heavily regulated. As the world of banking, budgeting and building investment portfolios becomes more complex, the need for strong, ethical financial managers in the public and private sector will continue to grow.

If you enjoy problem solving, analytical and critical thinking, earning a Bachelor of Business in Financial Management will challenge and equip you to engage in these efforts.

As a financial management student, you will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of productive learning experiences, such as managing a student-run investment fund valued at over $1,000,000, attending career-focused experiential short trips, obtaining an internship or participating in one of the many student-run entrepreneurial businesses. The financial management program can help you develop your problem-solving, teamwork, and marketplace skills, providing a springboard into dynamic career opportunities.
