Finance is a diverse discipline with many career opportunities.
At Ohio University, all finance majors take four foundational courses, ensuring a breadth of knowledge in the core areas of finance. The courses provide practical, applied training in financial markets and institutions, financial statement analysis, investments, and corporate finance. Then, we encourage you to select specialized curriculum tracks to prepare for your career in investments, corporate finance, or financial planning. As an OHIO finance student, you’ll have access to more than 30 College of Business student organizations, some which focus specifically on the needs of finance majors.
At graduation, you’ll leave Ohio University’s College of Business with sound theoretical knowledge of financial principles, highly developed problem-solving skills, and experience with industry standard analytical tools. As a graduate, you’ll be highly sought after in investment banking, commercial banking, corporate finance, financial planning, and insurance. Or, you can further your education and enter a variety of master’s programs.
Students that major in finance will graduate with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree (BBA).
