Best Finance colleges in the U.S.

Finance and business are fundamental to the global economy, and understanding how each sector functions is a crucial part of becoming successful in a professional setting. Students that are interested in pursuing a business or finance degree should be ready to refine their skills in math, communication, and relationship building so they can enter the workforce after graduation. 

Finance majors can find jobs working in the stock market, the insurance sector, accounting, and wealth management, along with a range of options depending on personal interest. Business majors tend to focus on workforce management, billing, and other aspects of running a personal business or entrepreneurial endeavor. 

For those interested in pursuing a degree in either business or finance, it is important to know that The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects opportunities in this field will grow by 17 percent in the next decade, which provides a healthy outlook for 2030.
