Finance professionals with money management, financial decision making, and financial planning skills are essential to keeping businesses and households running smoothly. Earning a bachelor's in finance degree is an important first step for anyone who is looking to pursue a career in this field.
At The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business at Post University, our Bachelor of Science in Finance degree program faculty members all possess top-notch academic credentials and extensive real-life experience in the field, and they apply their expertise to two tracks of study.
