The concentration in finance develops the skills necessary for understanding how to create wealth through the art and science of money management. The study of finance will help the student answer three fundamental questions. First, how much should any individual or firm invest? Second, what assets should the individual or firm invest in? Third, how should the cash required for the investment be raised? The finance concentration provides students with an understanding of how to answer these questions at the individual investor level and at the business/corporate level. Topics covered include the time value of money, capital budgeting, asset pricing, investments, portfolio analysis and derivatives.
