Students acquire a comprehensive understanding of equity, debt, and derivative securities and markets. They acquire the quantitative tools needed to analyze investment opportunities, manage portfolios, assess and manage financial risks, and make lending decisions.

Likely job titles include financial analyst, financial advisor, relationship manager, portfolio manager, risk manager, and research analyst.
Corporate Finance Track: Every business decision that involves the use of money is a corporate finance decision. The courses in this track prepare students to make sound business decisions, such as which business activities make financial sense for the firm’s owners, which business and financial risks are worth taking and which must be avoided, how to ensure a business has enough cash on hand to pay its bills, and whether profits should be reinvested in the business or distributed to the owners. The basic principles of financial decision-making are the same for large, publicly traded firms and small, privately run businesses. This track benefits both entrepreneurs and those seeking an entry level position in a corporation with the goal of one day attaining the position of Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
Data Analytics Track: Data analytics involves quantitative and qualitative techniques and tools to analyze and exploit the massive amount of data generated in business. This track introduces data retrieval and programming languages, such as SQL, R and Python, as well as new programming environments, such as Hadoop ecosystem, data mining techniques, sentiment analysis, and predictive analytics. The track will introduce some of the latest software used for performing data analytics and text mining. The data analytics skill set will be valuable in a wide range of businesses and organizations in government, education, and other sectors.

Students will gain cutting-edge marketing knowledge and skills in social media, search engine marketing, content marketing, digital marketing analytics, and more to develop high-performing integrated marketing plans that deliver on key marketing metrics.
Strategic Human Resource Management Track: Understanding how to reward employees, navigate legal requirements, and motivate a workforce are skills that every manager needs, regardless of their functional area or specialization.
