Concentration in Finance
Banking, international finance, investments, currency trading, money management, financial analysis -- sound like you? These are but a few of the careers developed through the finance concentration. You'll find Freeman alums working in finance positions around the globe, with companies from banks to governments and everything in between.
The curriculum is organized in a practical, experience-developing, career-focused way. Course content is dictated by the skills and knowledge sets you need to succeed in a finance career. The curriculum is sequenced to synchronize the timing of your finance training to the timing of your job search. Technical skills useful in summer internships and initial interviews are emphasized early in the curriculum and more complex integrative skills are developed later as you approach job site visits and graduation.
