The bachelor of science in business economics and finance prepares students for a variety of career paths: entry-level positions in financial analysis and services or in many areas of government service; graduate study in economics, finance or business; and the study of business-related areas of law. Majors with strong academic records can complete the master’s in economics and finance in one additional year.
Financial analysts work in commercial and investment banks, brokerage houses, mutual funds, life and health insurance companies, real estate investment trusts, pension funds, and corporate finance departments of non-traditional businesses. Students also will find that this degree prepares them well for many positions with government agencies, particularly those offices addressing budget, revenues, debt management, forecasting or economic development. This curriculum also provides a solid foundation for students interested in attending law school, especially in tax, antitrust, corporate (mergers and acquisitions) or securities law specialties. Students interested in other areas of economics or law may wish to enroll in one of the economics degree programs offered through the College of Arts and Sciences.
