Areas of Concentration: Finance


"MBA students in the Finance concentration can take advantage of classes offered by the Financial Engineering program. The Finance concentration is very state-of-the-art in that, students upon graduation will enter into jobs such as: analysts (Brokerage House), associate investment bankers for IPOs and start-ups, and any Finance-side jobs in the consulting world. I would say, the Finance concentration coupled with Financial Engineering courses, is the strongest concentration the MBA program has to offer."
