Finance Major

The finance major prepares students for a professional position in a variety of areas including banking, corporate finance, investment management, commercial development, private wealth management.

The design of the program of study is to introduce students to these areas, to provide them with the appropriate skills for employment, and to develop skills which will allow them to move professionally within their chosen career sector.

All of the business major programs at Cabrini include a common business core which recognizes the “enterprise” nature of today’s business world that integrates the various strategic areas of business.
