Financial Management

Financial professionals work with precision, and often under pressure, to manage large amounts of money in complex environments.

Kyle Mulrooney, finance major

Financial managers often obtain funds for an organization and guide the wise use of those funds, even orchestrating all of an organization's financial affairs. Career opportunities include the interrelated areas of money and capital markets, investments and financial management, with positions found in every segment of society.
