Finance

Progressive yet practical, the finance courses available at the Robins School of Business provide students with the broad base of knowledge and relevant experience that have helped them to pass the CFA Level I Exam and join the ranks of some of the most distinguished names in the finance profession. Students of the Robins School of Business leave their finance classes with the tools, knowledge, and experience to be leaders in finance.

Students concentrating in finance may take a variety of finance classes or direct their studies along either the corporate finance track or the CFA® Track. The corporate finance track is designed for students interested in working within the finance departments of major corporations.

The CFA track prepares students for investment careers and the CFA Level I Exam. The success of this track has captured the attention of business schools across the nation and the CFA Institute, which selected the Robins School as one of the original schools in the U.S. to be a CFA Institute Program Partner for training Chartered Financial Analysts.
