Program description

Choose between two pathways:

The Finance major studies financial markets, financial instruments and investment decision-making, and analyzes alternative methods in obtaining, managing and using capital. Finance incorporates basic economics, accounting and statistics in simple and complex mathematical models to simplify and study the complete economic reality of financing business and investments. Our recently launched flagship trading room (Centre for Financial Market Research and Teaching) allows students to experience the micro-structure of financial markets and risk management through trading and investment activities, using real-time financial data and current market information.

A degree or major in finance is required to be considered for the Finance major.


New for Fall 2022: project pathway
The Business Analytics concentration (BANA) blends coursework and a culminating experiential, applied project.
