Finance is the management of real money and real assets in a manner that provides the optimal use of these scarce resources. The world of finance is dynamic, increasingly competitive, complex and global. Finance professionals help track daily operations within an organization, analyze the current financial position, plan for future corporate expenditures and acquisitions and measure and manage risk exposure in an organization.
The University of Tulsa’s finance program prepares students to excel in this exciting arena. The career paths and options in finance are extensive, including corporate finance, banking, investment planning and real estate. TU’s School of Finance and Operations Management offers a finance major with three areas of study: corporate finance, investments and portfolio management.
The study of finance at TU involves perfecting students’ technical skills specific to the discipline as well as honing their management interests. The finance program is designed to educate students in all areas of business—accounting, economics, management, marketing and computer information systems—because the finance profession involves interaction with all these areas.
