The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a major in finance  places major emphasis on three areas of finance: financial management, investments and portfolio management, and financial markets and institutions. The student may select a general program or may structure his or her program around one of these specific areas: corporate finance, energy finance, international finance, or investments and portfolio management. Each course of study prepares students to approach financial decision making by analyzing financial data and market information within a framework of economic theory, and to deal with a wide range of financial problems, including those of business, financial institutions, and governments.
