Financial managers look out for the financial health of their organizations. As their role has changed with the advance of technology, so have the expectations of the role. This program provides not only a broad perspective of the global economic and financial environment, but also training in the latest advancements to produce financial reports, direct investment activities, and develop strategies and plans for long-term financial goals. The Bachelor of Science in Finance degree program also explores the range of tax laws and regulations that affect the business world.
