  • Why Study Finance at Le Moyne College?

    Consider the literally millions of transactions that occur around the world each day tied in some way to finance: a realtor finalizes a home sale... a stock price fluctuates... signatures seal the deal on a commercial loan application... corporate bonds are issued... new companies launch and existing companies declare bankruptcy.

    These and countless other moments don't happen on their own. They were the result of smart, forward-thinking individuals who have chosen a career in finance. The innermost workings of successful businesses rely on a firm financial foundation, and companies count on those in finance roles -- such as analysts and planners, business advisors, stockbrokers, investor relations associates and the like -- to chart their course. 


    Program Highlights

    Le Moyne's finance program educates students to become resourceful, decisive, respected leaders in the finance world, through courses such as Economics of Financial Markets, Intro to Government Systems, Banking, Corporate Risk Management, Financial Telecommunications and Cybersecurity, and Distress Investing, among others.  Students will learn how to sharpen their professional skills in the areas such as data gathering, market tactics, management team consulting, strategic planning, investor relations, financial model research and beyond. They will master how to manage a portfolio and maximize its return, allocate assets, evaluate corporate investment projects, identify risks, and develop analytical skills to solve practical issues that arise in dynamic financial environments.
