In accordance with the missions of Concord University and the Department of Business, the mission of the finance emphasis is to educate our students with a thorough understanding of the fundamental principles of finance. We strive to transform our students into graduates who think critically, are able to analyze financial information, and make sound financial decisions for a modern corporation. Additionally, ethical awareness and behavior are discussed where relevant.
The emphasis in Finance focuses on providing students with a broad foundation in financial theory and practice. Our goal is to ensure that our students have a working knowledge of the tools they will use on a day-to-day basis to make financial decisions in financial institutions and markets. Students build this foundation through a curriculum that balances discussion of important theories and concepts with practical application of this information to perform analyses and make decisions that simulate real-world financial management scenarios.
