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.
