WHY TO CHOOSE THIS PROGRAM
The Finance major is designed to equip students for careers in the investment, finance, banking and corporate financial services industries. The Finance major also has a strong risk management emphasis (ie the use of derivative securities such as options, futures and swaps to reduce risk exposure) which leads to risk management opportunities in the corporate sector.
Our Finance graduates are much in demand both within the Finance profession and also in other areas of business. There are a number of professional Finance bodies which offer further training to our graduates and this leads to careers in Audit, Business, Management, the Public Sector and Taxation.
Finance graduates have also a good record of moving up the hierarchy and achieving high positions within an organization, which is not necessarily in the Department of Finance.
Most bachelor's degree programs are designed to require 4 academic years of full-time study.
