Professor teaching a Finance class at Curry College

For students interested in joining the business world, a minor in Finance allows any major to gain the knowledge required for a career path that could include roles such as corporate finance manager, chief financial officer, controller, financial analyst, or financial planner. 

This five-course program is for students seeking deeper knowledge and skill development in financial modeling, capital budgeting and forecasting, and investments. In the capstone course, Advanced Corporate Finance, students gain valuable experience by working through a culminating case study.
