Finance

Today’s businesses need leaders who know how to make sound financial and business decisions based on proven methodologies and principles. The B.S. in Finance at Georgian Court University familiarizes you with accounting, investing, and economics while exposing you to the business operations arena.

Of course, you’ll learn how to crunch numbers, use financial software, and predict financial risks, but you’ll go beyond that into the bigger picture—leveraging fiscal concepts and strategies to run profitable, transparent, and compliant businesses and organizations. The program also teaches you about the role communications and marketing play in a finance career. Graduates with a B.S. in Finance go on to work at leading financial institutions, as well as in the government, education, and private business sectors.



For more information on program requirements, consult the Undergraduate Catalog.
