Whether your passion is for investment banking or securities on Wall Street, corporate finance on Main Street or the diverse opportunities the global economy offers, careers in finance are among the fastest-growing and best-paying positions in the business world.
Champlain's Bachelor of Science in Finance will prepare you to excel in this field of unlimited potential. The program is designed for motivated students seeking a degree that merges classic management skills with a strong financial skill set, rooted in a hands-on, work-based approach.
Our cutting-edge curriculum provides a firm foundation in accounting, portfolio management, financial analysis and quantitative methods. Additionally, our hands-on approach allows you to work with real clients on actual cases. You'll have six credits of Finance electives, which enable you to further address your own interests, current trends and specific employer needs. From your first year, you'll have access to the same data and tools used by investment professionals.
Champlain's Bachelor of Science in Finance has been accepted into the CFA Institute's University Recognition Program. This status is granted to institutions whose degree programs incorporate at least 70% of the CFA Program's Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK), while providing students with a solid grounding in the CBOK and positioning them well to sit for the CFA exams.
