What You Can Do With an MBA in Finance?

In an MBA finance program, professionals are prepared to delve deep into the intricacies of financial management, investment strategies, and market analysis. Graduates can navigate the complex world of banking, taking on roles such as Investment Banker, Financial Analyst, or Portfolio Manager. They might also explore opportunities in corporate finance as CFOs or Financial Managers, steering the financial direction of established companies or emerging startups. Asset management is another opportunity, allowing graduates to become Fund Managers or Financial Advisors, guiding investments and retirement portfolios. Beyond traditional finance roles, they can leverage their expertise in consulting, and advising firms on mergers, acquisitions, or capital market strategies. Given Seton Hall's proximity to New York City and Manhattan, students have a unique advantage, benefiting from unparalleled networking opportunities, internships, and firsthand experiences with leading financial institutions on Wall Street and beyond. An MBA in Finance from the Seton Hall University Stillman School of Business opens doors to a myriad of roles at the intersection of business strategy and financial acumen.
