MASTER OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION - FINANCE CONCENTRATION     •  39 CREDITS     •  FIN CON MBA

In today’s marketplace, financial management of an organization has evolved from a functional responsibility role to one that requires the expertise to develop key business strategies based on understanding business issues and implications. The Finance Concentration prepares business leaders to analyze the organization’s operating and financial environment and recommend strategies to enhance profitability while helping the organization mitigate potential risks. Key to this concentration is the knowledge of strategic planning, financial analysis, investment planning, internal controls, legal issues, risk mitigation and evaluation of both domestic and international financial strategies.
