Finance

Completing the Finance option will provide you with the professional competencies required to enter financial management positions in business enterprises, investment management and services organizations, banking, financial institutions, or government agencies concerned with private finance.

Am I the right fit for this option?

Areas of study in finance include:

  • corporate finance - the management of the assets and liabilities of a publicly-owned business enterprise
  • securities and investment management - the analysis and management of financial assets using modern portfolio theories
  • money and banking - the workings of Canadian capital markets and the financial institutions that operate in those markets
  • international finance - the workings of international capital markets and special skills required to manage corporate assets and liabilities in an international environment.

Because the program is competitive, you should be able to demonstrate the ability to do well in the core courses in this area. If you have less than a 65% standing in COMM 290, 291, 293, 294, 295, 298 we advise you not to select this option.
