Finance deals with how individuals and businesses make decisions with regard to spending and investment in an environment with scarce economic resources. Finance professionals must have a solid academic background that prepares them to make these types of decisions. The finance program at Morehead State University offers a curriculum designed to prepare students to meet these challenges by helping them acquire knowledge of fundamental finance concepts and develop sound analytical and decision-making skills. Finance majors can choose from one of three program tracks, which are specifically designed to prepare them for exciting and potentially lucrative careers in banking, corporate finance, or investments.
