Banking & Financial Specialization

Following graduation, Banking and Financial Management students may pursue a variety of careers, including: commercial and retail banking, investment banking, commercial lending, risk management, corporate finance, venture capital, entrepreneurship, and other fields in the financial services area.

The admissions process follows the general bachelor's degree enrollment steps. Students are accepted into the program for the Spring, Summer and Fall terms which start in January, May and August each year.

Courses are taught by experts with extensive knowledge in financial services. The specialization builds on the degree's core courses which include managerial and cost accounting, economics, human resources, the legal and ethical aspects of business, management and leadership, organizational behavior, strategic management and business communications. Banking and Financial Management track students also learn about global money markets, monetary policy, the role of central banks, mortgage and lending functions, banking regulations and compliance, management and security issues, plus financial asset management. 

This BAS program is designed for students who already hold an Associate in Science degree (A.S.), Associate in Arts degree (A.A.) or higher from a regionally accredited institution, including recent graduates and those with experience in the work force. An Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree does not meet the minimum eligibility requirement for entry into this program. AAS degree holders who intend to transfer into the BAS program should consult with an academic advisor to review coursework and determine the best transfer options.
