Business Admin Major: Finance

T. Rowe Price Finance Lab at Towson University's College of Business and Economics

This business administration major with a corporate finance concentration prepares students for careers in the corporate finance field responsible for capital budgeting and working capital. Common positions in the banking, insurance and real estate industries include business analyst, credit analyst and lender.

The corporate finance concentration for the business administration major has been accepted into the CFA Institute University Recognition Program. This status is granted to institutions whose degree program(s) incorporate at least 70 percent of the CFA Program® Candidate Body of Knowledge—providing students a solid foundation that positions them well to sit for the exam to earn the Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA) designation.

As a part of the program, students complete the Bloomberg Essentials Certification for Equities, which certifies their skills with Bloomberg terminal technology, the world leader in financial and data services, and gives them a competitive advantage.
