Are you good at math, interested in investing and budgeting, or want to crunch numbers for businesses? Well lucky you! Earning your degree in finance may be your calling. Finance is the study of money and how it’s created and managed, which includes investments, assets, and liabilities. Common coursework includes financial markets, corporate finance, and risk assessment.
Where this degree can get tricky is in understanding how it differs from accounting. Generally speaking, finance is more focused on a wider area of the business and financial sector, including economics, banking, and business. Accounting focuses more on financial reports and records. At some universities, finance may be a stand-alone major, and at other schools, most likely smaller schools, it may be an emphasis or concentration within a business administration degree. Common careers of those with this degree include financial analysts, wealth advisors, and investment bankers.
