Finance is the science or study of managing money, banking, investments and credit. Finance can be broken into three different sub categories: public finance, corporate finance and personal finance. Finance provides the knowledge of how to allocate assets over time under conditions of certainty and uncertainty and the time value of money over a specific amount of time.
The Finance program at Saint Francis University gives students the opportunity to gain knowledge from top-level professors in a small class environment. Students in the Finance program will develop critical thinking and decision-making skills while working closely with students or in small group settings. It is intended to provide students with a wide-ranging knowledge base that will increase their value to employers. The professors in the Finance program have real world professional experience and help students relate their education to the field. Saint Francis University has an Investment Club which manages a pool of money of approximately $15,000 which gives Finance students interested in a career in investments real world experiences.
