Do risk management for an emerging company. Or investment banking for an established one. A degree in finance preps you for both, and more.
Our faculty members are our backbone. They’ve worked for banks, consulted for governments around the world, and pushed the discipline forward with their research. You’ll get a healthy combination of theory and practice from them.
Finance is one of the most flexible and active aspects of business. So our coursework emphasizes traditional quantitative methods as well as the psychology and ethics behind it.
We offer bachelor's and master's degrees as well as an emphasis program for MBA students. If you want to apply the skills you learn in an internship, you can take advantage of our extensive network in and around the Valley.
Finance opens all kinds of doors. Our graduates wind up as analysts with banks, VC firms, and tech companies. They also go into consulting, management, and accounting.
