Bachelor of Science
Finance combines practical, real-life concepts of the corporate world to provide a strong foundation in business practices, such as how businesses, financial institutions, and the government raise and invest capital to achieve their goals.
Students who graduate with a degree in finance can enter careers in domestic and multinational corporate financial management, the management of financial markets and institutions, personal financial planning, and investment analysis and portfolio management.
Recent graduates have found employment with many of the nation's top corporations and financial institutions, including: Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Dean Witter, The Vanguard Group and American Express Financial Services.

The KU team is advised by Dr. John Walker, professor of finance, who states, "KU has had terrific success in the Bank Competition in the past, and I expect this year's team will also do well."
During the visit with bank executives, students discussed many topics, including recent developments in the banking industry and the outlook for small community banks over the next ten years.
