Our department offers a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in financial management.

Opportunities for students are endless, but highlights include our student-managed investment fund through Wall Street South, financial modeling workshops, CFP exam preparation, and scholarships for the Level I Charted Financial Analyst (CFA) Exam. Past Creative Inquiry classes have focused on artificial intelligence and machine learning in real estate, the CFA Global Research Challenge and Bloomberg Certification.
