Sawyer Business School’s Finance department offers cutting-edge curriculum that focuses on the evolving demands of the global financial environment. You are introduced to the latest educational technology, including Compustat, CRSP, StockTrak, Bloomberg, and Morningstar. Our trading room provides a simulated environment where you can analyze the latest stock quotes and compare currency exchange rates, just as professional traders do.

You’ll learn from faculty who have real-world business experience at companies such as Ford Motor Company, Rho-Theta Associates, and Delta Partners LLC. Your professors offer a first-hand global perspective as many have lived, worked, and studied in countries like Tunisia, China, Uganda, and Iran. Others are leading researchers who publish in top academic journals, such as the Journal of Corporate Finance and the Journal of Economics and Business.

Many of our graduates earn the Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA) designation—a mark of distinction that sets them apart in the workplace. That’s because our BSBA in Finance and MSF degree incorporate at least 70 percent of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge and emphasize the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. As a result, both programs have been accepted into the CFA Institute University Recognition Program.
