The Madden School of Business at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New YorkWelcome to the
Finance Program!

Students in the finance program study the science and art of making investment and financing decisions under conditions of uncertainty at both the individual and institutional levels. For example, students learn how to answer questions such as:

  • How do we evaluate a corporate investment project, and how should we finance the project?
  • How do we manage a portfolio through the allocation of capital among different asset classes so as to maximize the portfolio’s return while maintaining an acceptable level of risk?
  • How do we identify and manage risk in a constantly changing market?
  • How can we use opportunities scattered throughout the international financial markets to balance the trade-off between risk and return?
  • Students will explore the theories and practices of topics such as asset allocation, portfolio management, capital budgeting, securities markets, risk management, and international finance. Our finance program emphasizes the development of analytical skills to solve practical issues that arise in dynamic financial environments.

Career opportunities for finance majors can be found in the financial industry and the corporate world, including commercial and investment banking, investment management, financial advising, and corporate finance.

Trading Center

The Trading Center located in Mitchell Hall is an excellent resource for our finance students. Equipped with research and portfolio management systems from Bloomberg and Morningstar, and supplemented by the StockTrak trading platform, the Center offers students a state-of-the-art hands-on learning experience.

The Center is also home to the Le Moyne Investment Club, which provides students with real-world experience in working as analyst teams in managing their investment portfolios. The Center will also host seminars during which experts from the financial service industry will provide investment advice and training on how to use the various resources.
