College of Business & Economics
The business administration major with a finance concentration focuses on corporate finance. Students develop financial modeling skills and apply them to both investments and corporate finance topics. The program culminates in the capstone course, Financial Policy (FIN 439), which covers advanced finance topics like valuation, leasing and mergers and acquisitions through a case study approach.
Students who major in business administration with a concentration in finance are prepared for positions in the industries of managerial finance, banking, insurance and securities.
Students in this program complete the requirements for the business administration major and 24 units in finance.
Admission to the business administration major is selective. Students are admitted to the major on a competitive basis after first being admitted to the university. Before being admitted to the business administration major students must first declare a "pre-Business Administration" major and complete the lower-level prerequisites and other requirements. Students are encouraged to meet with their faculty adviser each term to evaluate their progress in completing the requirements for admission to the major.
