Develop a Broad Understanding of Financial Markets and Your Role in a Dynamic Economy

The finance major at UCF provides you with a broad knowledge in business finance, investments, financial institutions, international finance, risk management and insurance, and real estate. Throughout your coursework, you’ll learn asset valuation, corporate planning and performance analysis — gaining the theoretical background and tools of analysis required for making effective financial decisions.

In upper-level finance classes, you’ll integrate Bloomberg terminals into your studies, which are used extensively by the financial services industry to analyze companies and various securities (e.g. equity, fixed income, options). You can also boost your skill set and enhance your resume by taking the Bloomberg Market Concepts test that leads to certification. Or, if you’re interested in Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) material, the Financial Statement Analysis course helps your understand and interpret financial statement data for business decisions and valuations.

After graduating with your finance degree, you’ll be prepared to gain employment in a number of fields such as corporate business analytics, project management, investments, financial advising, wealth management, banking and insurance.
