Towson University's Department of Finance teaches the analytical skills and financial
modeling necessary to be successful in the business world.
Striving for academic excellence, we cultivate a forward-thinking environment and
encourage students to think about the social and economic welfare of the community
while emphasizing ethical behavior. Upon graduation, our students are expected to
be respectable corporate citizens who bring common good to the global business environment.
We also offer a finance minor for CBE students who are not concentrating in finance or taking the financial economics
track within the economics major.
Opportunities and Resources for Students
Our programs utilize state-of-the-art resources and technology including the T. Rowe Price Finance Laboratory, which simulates a trading room environment. The lab is complete with a financial
and market data stream that allows students to track stocks and bonds and value complex
securities in real time.
We encourage students to participate in extracurricular activities offered through
the department’s student organizations, such as the Towson University Investment Group and the Towson chapter of the Financial Management Association. The Towson University
Investment Group manages a portfolio from the Towson University Foundation.
Our department offers various scholarships for academic excellence and leadership.
We emphasize a close working relationship with professionals in the industry and believe
in training students to be top-notch professionals through internships.
