A bachelor's degree in finance will help you hone the financial skills necessary to work in banking, corporate finance, insurance, and personal financial advising careers. Advanced experiential teaching methods will give you the expertise to manage organizational resources, understand financial markets, and analyze and apply critical thinking skills to solve business problems. You'll graduate with the tools to start an exciting career, or continue toward an advanced degree.

You’ll also leave here with the skills to communicate effectively, articulate your career preparation confidently, and collaborate with others meaningfully. And in all things, we’ll help you work toward becoming a capable and trusted disciple of Jesus Christ. So whatever you do, you’ll be prepared to be the best you possible.


Have you laid out your course sequencing yet? It’s essential that you meet with your success advisor first thing to ensure that you stay on track. Accumulating too many credits will not only affect your eligibility for financial aid, but also your ability to transfer to another school. So don’t wait. Set yourself up for success by mapping out your required courses from the beginning.
