Major in Finance
The finance major in the Wake Forest University Schools of Business prepares you for a successful career in financial services, including portfolio management, investment and commercial banking and financial consulting. The major emphasizes a strong concentration in finance, supported by accounting concepts beyond the introductory level, which is critical in a global environment.
The finance major is also one of our gateway majors to one-year Master of Science in Accountancy degree.
This program emphasizes the integration of financial economics, accounting and applied statistics to provide students a framework with which to understand a complex financial landscape. Graduates are encouraged to pursue a certification such as the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).
For students to be optimally prepared in a competitive economic environment, it is strongly recommended that students pursue an internship during the summer between the junior and senior year.
