A demanding program that prepares students to play an important role in the financial industry. Students gain an in-depth knowledge of investments and managerial finance. Many graduates go on to complete a professional designation such as the chartered financial analyst or certified financial planner.
  • Finance is an interesting and rewarding field but it is also very demanding both academically and professionally. It is divided into two areas—investments and corporate finance.
  • Investments involves managing the money of high net-worth individuals like successful tech entrepreneurs or athletes; institutions like pension plans, university endowments, and trust funds; or average people who just want to finance their children’s education and save enough to retire early. A financial advisor helps their clients attain their financial goals while minimizing the riskiness of their investment portfolios using different investment strategies like derivatives. Potential investments include GICs, stocks, bonds, asset-backed securities, currency, futures, options, real estate, commodities such as gold, collectibles like hockey cards, private equity, or hedge funds to name a few. Potential employers include banks, wealth management firms, insurance companies, pension funds, private equity firms, hedge funds, and mutual fund companies among others.
  • Corporate finance focuses on how organizations manage their net working capital and fixed assets and fund them with an optimal mix of debt and equity financing. Net working capital are a firm’s short-term operating assets like cash, accounts receivable, inventory, and accounts payable while fixed assets include land, building, and equipment.
