Finance is what fuels business
Every part of the financial cycle—from where to get money, how to invest it, how much to price and pay for things so that your company (or your household) stays in business—involves a financial decision. The bankers, brokers, analysts, and planners who make those decisions studied finance, just like you. Tippie’s finance major gives you the skills to make decisions in the face of uncertainty, the fundamentals to solve financial problems, and the ability to communicate your recommendations clearly.
Our department is led by some of the leading minds in finance, and you’ll benefit from their insights and expertise.
“Not everyone in the C-suite has a financial background, especially not in the utility company where I did my internship. I was proud to be able to present my report in a way that the executives could use and reference.”
