Finance graduates are often fascinated by the quantitative side of business and like to do the research and analysis needed to make effective financial decisions. Finance graduates tend to be willing to take risks, deal with change readily, and take on leadership roles.
You may find you are effective at organizing, analyzing, and interpreting numerical data. In finance you will develop the knowledge of financial practices and trends, the ability to explain complex financial transactions and data to others, and the aptitude to make sound judgments and decisions.
Employment opportunities focused on finance are found in real estate, insurance, investment banking, financial planning, and retail and commercial banking. Since most businesses have finance departments, corporate finance is another common job area. Federal, state and local government agencies also offer a wide range of opportunities.
