Finance Major

Finance

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.

Multifaceted Finance Education

Our cutting-edge curriculum provides a firm foundation in accounting, portfolio management, financial analysis and quantitative methods. Our hands-on approach allows you to work with real clients on actual cases. Six credits of Finance electives will 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.

CFA-Recognized Program

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.

Small Class Sizes

Classes in the Stiller School will never be in a giant lecture hall. In the Finance program, your largest class size will be 24 students, and the professors you have in your first semester are the same professors who teach advanced and specialized classes. You'll have the opportunity for one-on-one interactions and mentorship from your Finance professors, who bring their real-world knowledge into the classroom.
