The finance major is offered by the Accounting, Business, and Economics Department. It provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the principles that underlie the operation and functions of financial markets and the analytical and quantitative skills needed for an understanding of current financial issues, practices, and policies. Additionally, the major prepares students for graduate work in business and finance and careers in banking, insurance, investments, and corporate financial planning.
The Accounting, Business, and Economics department supervises an endowed, student run Investment Society, through which students can earn 0.5 credit by enrolling in FIN 144 - Introduction to Portfolio Management (The Investment Society) .
A departmental honors program is available on an application basis to students who establish outstanding academic records (minimum College GPA of 3.70). Interested students should discuss the requirements and rewards of this program with their faculty advisor before the end of their junior year.
The department has an extensive internship program that provides the finance major with a wide range of opportunities to gain valuable work experience. Supervised paid and unpaid internships, which contribute to the Muhlenberg degree, are available during the regular school year. In addition, the department offers assistance in obtaining paid summer internships that may also contribute to the degree.
