Financial professionals make a global impact on the businesses and customers they serve. Have you ever wondered how businesses are able to grow by adding new buildings, creating jobs, or producing new goods and services? Financial needs also extend well beyond the corporate world into areas like government and personal services such as financial planning. If you invest money or spend it in large amounts to purchase homes or attend college, chances are a financial professional will be there to help you along the way.
If some of your best skills include understanding numbers, working in a team, solving problems creatively, and communicating well, a career as a financial professional may be the right fit for you. Our faculty members have extensive knowledge and make every effort to ensure you graduate with the skills needed to succeed in your field of interest.
In Carroll University’s finance major, you’ll learn how to review and work with financial data as you put together plans and discuss topics with your peers. You’ll also spend time in classes examining case-based, real-world financial problems that impact organizations. After you analyze and present these projects to your peers, you’ll practice communication techniques for asking and answering complex questions. Other required courses allow you to explore areas of business such as marketing, management, and accounting. Your working knowledge of these areas, in addition to your financial skills, will give you a competitive career advantage.
Our students engage in required internships that provide them with real-world experiences as they prepare for future careers. You’ll have the option to find an internship that best suits your career goals and schedule. By taking anywhere from one to twelve internship credits while you attend Carroll, you’ll develop the skills employers are looking for while you build your professional network. This major is enhanced with a minor in areas like accounting, actuarial science, psychology, or communication.
The financial profession is a fast-growing industry with consistently available opportunities for high-paying positions. Graduates of our program grow into roles such as controller, treasurer, bank president, and chief financial officer (CFO).
Carroll offers a finance minor that complements many areas of study.
