Majoring in Finance at Elmira College will require a significant investment on your part. Success will demand your best, starting on the first day of classes in our new, state-of-the-art classrooms. You’ll be one of a select group of students benefiting from the College’s small classes and challenging courses taught by dedicated faculty. The investment will pay off with an enriching career in areas such as security markets, investment management, and corporate finance.
The new Finance Major joins the Accounting, Economics, and Business Administration majors in providing students with the education they need to get ahead and stay ahead. A state of the art Finance Trading Room will be the centerpiece of the finance majors’ hands-on, real-life education. This new facility, which is currently under construction, will be ready for operation in the fall of 2014.
The finance major provides students with the opportunity to develop specialized professional knowledge in finance while also achieving intellectual breadth in the liberal arts and sciences. In addition to the College’s General Degree requirements, the finance major requires a total of 58 to 61 credit hours. Thirty-six credit hours are core course requirements, and 21–24 (depending on Finance Internship) are major course requirements.
