Finance & Accounting Certificate

This certificate program provides an understanding of the finance decision-making process and insights into how financial markets function. The curriculum provides an integral part of the education for students seeking finance positions in finance, industry, government or nonprofit institutions.

Courses in finance are divided into two broad categories. One category focuses on microfinance issues: corporation finance and investments. The second category focuses on macro-finance issues: financial markets and the international financial system. All finance courses apply economic analysis, accounting, and quantitative methods to the financial questions encountered.  The Financial and Accounting Program has a broader spectrum on how all businesses should be in collaboration and is home to a unique world-renowned faculty. Some of our faculty serve as government advisers, consultants to leading firms and major government agencies, journal editors, trustees and directors of corporate and nonprofit firms.
