B.S. in FINANCE

Finance is a powerful and influential field which can be defined as the art and science of managing money.  Virtually all individuals and organizations earn or raise money and spend or invest money.  Finance is concerned with the process, institutions, markets and instruments involved in the transfer of money among and between individuals, businesses, and governments.  The study of Finance provides a consistent framework for financial decision-making by individuals, small business firms, financial institutions, and large corporations. It is an essential business function and all business students should have at least an exposure to the issues.  

If you are interested in working in the stock market, or in the banking and financial sector as an analyst for industry and government, you should find the study of finance to be interesting and rewarding.  The B.S. in Finance program gives students a broad base and understanding of the principles that govern financial institutions and markets, and the strategies employed.The program also develops studentsí professional competence as financial executives and prepares them for careers in corporate finance, investment banking, international finance, security analysis, brokerage and securities trading, and portfolio management.  Recent LIU-Brooklyn graduates are working at the NYSE, Quick & Reilly, Goldman Sachs and other prominent financial institutions.
