Overview

APU’s finance major prepares students to make sound financial decisions. The program provides a solid foundation in accounting principles, investments, economics, business law, international business, statistics, and marketing. These then serve as a framework for in-depth study of financial markets, international trade, financial analysis, and risk management.

Students learn practical application of finance theory through case studies and internships in order to guide organizations toward financial opportunities and risk management. Finance majors leave APU with the tools they need to be good stewards of personal and corporate financial resources.
