The financial management emphasis provides students with the skills needed to succeed in careers in financial management. The business community has affirmed that students need skills in both the accounting and finance areas. The financial management specialty incorporates knowledge of corporate financial management, financial institutions and markets, investments, financial accounting and managerial accounting, accounting information systems and information technology. Career opportunities include corporate financial management, finance/accounting positions with financial institutions and accounting positions that are not CPA-track. The specialization provides a solid finance and accounting background for other business positions as well.
In addition, financial management students must complete FNCE 4370, International Finance, to fulfill the international studies requirement.
* Students should note that all finance and accounting courses are not offered every semester. Students should take the ACCT 2200 and ACCT 2220 courses as soon as possible to avoid future problems in their schedules, since these are prerequisites for all courses in the specialization.
