Finance is involved with the acquisition, investment and management of the cash resources of business entities, governmental agencies, and individuals. Its practitioners must have a thorough understanding of the financial markets where money is raised, know how to analyze investment opportunities, and because the objective of any financial decision is to maximize value, understand how investors determine value. 

Finance majors learn the theory and analytical tools associated with finance related decision-making in organizations. A major in Finance will help you develop the essential skills for careers in financial reporting and analysis and investment portfolio management for profit or not-for-profit organizations.
