Why Choose Finance?
If accounting is the language of business, then finance is the science. Our goal in the Finance Area is to provide you with a strong framework for financial decision making, from the Nobel prize-winning models of the early theorists to the state-of-the-art methodologies of today.
If you enjoy math and the sciences, you will likely enjoy the structured way of thinking in Finance. Careers in finance can be intellectually stimulating as well as rewarding in a monetary sense. In addition, students with a primary interest in other fields frequently add a secondary depth in Finance. An understanding of the principles and practice of finance is often essential for career development, particularly as graduates' responsibilities become more general in nature as they progress in their careers. Or you may be interested in learning about finance for personal reasons. Virtually everyone can benefit from an understanding of how financial matters influence their personal lives, including concerns such issues as retirement planning, insurance and risk management, and investments in financial assets and real estate.
