Program Description:

Two majors are available: finance and financial services. The finance major includes a core of courses that covers all aspects of the theory and practice of financial management. Financial management involves managing the financial affairs of businesses and other organizations. The curriculum includes courses in accounting, investments, financial planning and analysis, international finance, and managerial finance. A special sequence of courses has been designated for students interested in obtaining the CFM (Certified in Financial Management) designation. Among the many job opportunities open to the graduate with a finance major are capital budgeting analyst, cash manager, credit analyst, financial analyst, loan officer, and financial manager.

The financial services major is designed to meet the growing need for people who are knowledgeable in all areas of personal financial management, including investments, insurance, tax planning, retirement planning, real estate, estate planning, and personal financial planning. Among the many career opportunities available to the graduate with a financial services major are financial planner, stockbroker, insurance agent, real estate broker, loan officer, and trust officer. Students who complete the financial services major and the appropriate electives at Wright State are eligible to sit for the Certified Financial Planner exam.

Students with an interest in both finance and accounting may wish to consider a dual major in finance and accounting. Interested students should contact an academic advisor.
