Finance Major
Finance is about business decision making associated with financing and investing. The Finance Major gives a thorough exposure to a wide range of finance institutions including stock and bond markets, foreign-exchange markets, commercial banks, investment banks, the Bank of Canada, and the US Federal Reserve. Through problems, cases, and spreadsheets, students apply finance theory to real-world issues and graduate with the skills and understanding necessary for a successful career in the finance industry.

How do you value a share of stock; what about a new company project? What are options, futures, forwards, and swaps? What is the principal-agent problem? What about risk and return? Why diversify? Students in the Finance Major can answer these questions and understand why they are important concepts for any business.
