Finance Major

Millions of Americans invest in mutual funds and individual stocks — millions more count on the dividends of retirement plans. Corporations raise and invest billions of dollars of capital annually. At the heart of it all are financial professionals, who analyze and maximize the value of investments for individual families as well as multinational firms.
