Finance students focus on learning how to make the best decisions about raising and using resources under risk. Finance addresses many questions regarding value:

  • How much is a product worth?
  • Is a stock worth investing in?
  • Will expanding a business produce a sufficient return on investment?

Deciding what to do with the opportunities and resources you have or can obtain today, balanced with your business needs for tomorrow — that’s what the field of finance is all about.

Research Databases

The Finance Department helps maintain an extensive set of research databases for faculty and students. The availability of our databases is made possible through the generous support of the Lerner College, the Unidel Foundation, Donald J. Puglisi and gifts from many other alumni, faculty and friends.

For examples of research produced with these databases, please visit our faculty research page.
