What I love about my major: Finance: youtube.com/watch?v=pQuxapLvVQo

Do you want to make a difference? Have options when you graduate? Study finance.

 

A strong background in finance will prepare you for a decision-making role in any organization. Why? Because success for any organization depends on its ability to make good decisions in critical areas, including:

  • Opening a new production facility
  • Expanding the product line
  • Adding employees
  • Entering new markets
  • Adopting new technology

In Lerner’s finance program, you will learn how to balance opportunity with risk to ensure resources are allocated to their best use. You will learn how finance influences almost every aspect of an organization, whether a bank, consulting firm, public or private corporation, governmental organization or non-profit.

The curriculum provides a strong foundation that will prepare you for all categories of finance careers including investment management, corporate finance and financial services. Our challenging, rewarding program is one of the most popular undergraduate majors at UD.
