Finance: The Language of Business

Do risk management for an emerging company. Or investment banking for an established one. A degree in finance preps you for both, and more. 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.
